The Fascist Union of The Velekrian Empire is a colossal, economically powerful nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.281 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. 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 8th in Zentari and 111,228th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring -30 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
