The Interim Order of Veleste is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Moro-Aldo with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.186 billion Velestians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port of Caneva. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Velestean economy, worth a remarkable 1,315 trillion labour notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 253,702 labour notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, Moro-Aldo's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Veleste's national animal is the Red ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Veleste is ranked 30,009th in the world and 31st in Novo Brasil for Most Influential, scoring 727 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
