Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Five United Kingdoms of Velgast is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Oliver Stame of Wintervale I with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 7.508 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 98.0%.

The all-consuming Velgastian economy, worth 994 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 132,437 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retired racing Telian Bears are served truffles for breakfast, the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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 3,841st in Osiris and 136,600th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -39 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
