The Five United Kingdoms of Velgast is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Oliver Stame of Wintervale I with an even hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 6.886 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 is mainly concerned with 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.

Tax rises are attributed to divine will, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Velgast after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, and military spending is on the increase. 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 3,218th in Lazarus and 115,132nd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -7 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
