Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Velgorod is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Regime IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, state-planned economy, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.399 billion Velgorodians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leningorod. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Velgorodian economy, worth 533 trillion Novas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 72,136 Novas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The psych wards are overflowing with transsexuals, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velgorod's national animal is the Moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Velgorod is ranked 87,304th in the world and 2nd in The United Pacific States for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,021.04 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
