The Galactik Imperium of Velon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by SQUEE with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 20.63 billion Velonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of poopopolis. The average income tax rate is 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, the government is sending thousands of citizens overseas to defend a square mile of land, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Velon's national animal is the piggus chunkus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the donut hole.

Velon is ranked 7th in The North Pacific and 148th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 570 Dawkins.
