Why Us?

Venice is most definitely a special city. What makes us over the top? Many things. Venice is self governed, meaning the Roman Catholic Church doesn't address our every move. We have become open minded as a people because of our acceptance of new technologies! Being in such a nice location that accommodates sea travel and mountain protection has made Venetians great thinkers and hard workers. We use our time to focus on studies rather than worry about impending attacks. There is no oppressing system such as class structure, everyone is free to do what they choose. Trading in Venice is productive and rewarding.


What about the others?


The other city states in Italy can not compare to what we offer. Other cities such as Florence, are much harder to reach since they are inland. Genoa on the other hand, is not as convenient for our fellow Islamic and Asian friends to sail to.

Our Citizens

Venice contains some of the most amazing citizens! We...

  • We believe all government authority figures deserve respect as well as all citizens. Women have more freedom to express their opinion on social matters. For this we are proud of our stable government!

  • We value our citizens' safety and security. We believe in power to the citizens! Military training is available to all classes. Also, to guarantee security, our hardworking citizens have built a strong shipyard, naval base, and armory.

  • The merchant class became very wealthy through trade with the East.

  • Venetians greatly value the beauty of art. For this reason many artists flock to Venice and this supports merchants and traders

  • Venetians are highly educated as we value knowledge and new ideas that are brought by people drawn by the beauty and success in trade of our city-state.

  • We believe in pursuing knowledge and feel that we should share our insight. Because of this, Venice became the center of the book trade.

  • We take pride in and embrace our history while advancing our society.
