The Five United Kingdoms of Velgast is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Oliver Stame of Wintervale I with an even hand, and notable for its national health service. The hard-nosed population of 6.738 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hemelsestad. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year, abortions are routinely performed in Velgast's hospitals, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Crowns of property damage, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is Old Gods of Carduun, and its currency is the Crown.

Velgast is ranked 3,301st in Lazarus and 116,657th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -7 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
