The Liberal Tropical Emirates of Velkia and the Islands is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Protectorate Pika Paquet with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 23.121 billion Velkia Islanders 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Four Corners. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Velkian economy, worth a remarkable 5,822 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 251,838 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Velkian politicians, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime is totally unknown. Velkia and the Islands's national animal is the Breegull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Velkia and the Islands is ranked 224,922nd in the world and 432nd in Forest for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -22.25 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
