The Apathetic State of Velarin is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Ranic Tolaris with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, vat-grown people, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.301 billion Velarins are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Velarina. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Velarin economy, worth 277 trillion Vels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 83,974 Vels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

War vets look after war animals, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, and ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward. Crime is totally unknown. Velarin's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Velarin is ranked 32,072nd in the world and 994th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 74.16 on the Human Development Index.
