The Empire of Velion is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zebith with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.165 billion Velionians 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 medium-sized, corrupt 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 74.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Velionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,393 trillion Crekuchings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 226,026 Crekuchings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Meteorologists are instantly recognizable from their luxury cars and jewelry, nobody ever questions the unquestioned rule that questions must always be asked, the nation is noticeably more cheerful on Tuesdays, and almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Velion is ranked 50,735th in the world and 41st in The United Federations for Most Average, scoring 44.24 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
