The Fascist Union of The Velekrian Empire is a colossal, economically powerful nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.235 billion Velekrians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business individuals devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Welfare and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aephius. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing industries.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. The Velekrian Empire's national animal is the Kattorrai, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the VekCred.

The Velekrian Empire is ranked 4th in Zentari and 18,855th in the world for Largest Populations, with 5,235 Capita (millions).
