Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Five United Kingdoms of Velgast is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Oliver Stame of Wintervale I with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 7.758 billion Velgastians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hemelsestad. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Velgastian economy, worth a remarkable 1,050 trillion Crowns a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,452 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Governments opposing Velgast are beset by rebels, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, and over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velgast's national animal is the Telian Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Old Gods of Carduun.

Velgast is ranked 5,293rd in the world and 8th in Greater Ixnay for Smartest Citizens, with 98.82 Quips Per Hour.
