The Galactik Imperium of Velon is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by SQUEE with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.786 billion velonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Public Transport, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of poopopolis. The average income tax rate is 1.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The velonian economy, worth a remarkable 6,025 trillion donut holes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 195,733 donut holes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government-sponsored autobiography 'A SQUEE For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of SQUEE's supporters, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, and victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Velon's national animal is the piggus chunkus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Velon is ranked 159,952nd in the world and 8,123rd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -30.25 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
