The Kingdom of Velosia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Tohmas IX with a fair hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.342 billion Velosians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ethalstad. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Velosian economy, worth 206 trillion talons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 61,672 talons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Velosian Space Agency, and gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velosia's national animal is the seadragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Velosia is ranked 44,745th in the world and 352nd in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,231.73 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
