The Iymârivshen of Lesser Velutaria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rho den Aehl with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.119 billion Velutarians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government prioritizes Industry, although Defense and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volustia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vellish economy, worth 374 trillion Inis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 119,911 Inis, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 718,825 per year while the poor average 9,067, a ratio of 79.3 to 1.

Citizens are expected to be armed at all times, frisbee games on college quadrangles are grounds for expulsion, atheism is seen as a prerequisite for political power, and terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lesser Velutaria's national animal is the Blue-crested Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Rygalic Pantheon.

Lesser Velutaria is ranked 207,050th in the world and 335th in Anteria for Safest, scoring 4.61 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
