The Empire of Veliko is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 400 million Velikites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostorra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The all-consuming Velikoan economy, worth 47.5 trillion Scons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 118,746 Scons, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper, children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, and the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Veliko's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Veliko is ranked 130,975th in the world and 11th in The Free Economic Zone of Desertiania for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 548.33 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
