The Empire of Velion is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zebith with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.459 billion Velionians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of IronWolf. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Velionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,670 trillion Crekuchings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 223,921 Crekuchings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, Velionians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, conspiracy theorists allege IronWolf's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velion's national animal is the Timber Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Velion is ranked 11,368th in the world and 19th in The United Federations for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,625.55 Tourists Per Hour.
