The Apathetic State of Velarin is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ranic Tolaris with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.949 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Velarina. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Velarin economy, worth 165 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 broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 84,858 Vels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, Velarina spends billions upgrading public transport, there's never enough space in space, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. Crime is totally unknown. Velarin's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Velarin is ranked 97,130th in the world and 3,617th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 876.56 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
