The Galactik Imperium of Velon is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by SQUEE with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 21.136 billion Velonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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 76%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Artists are pillars of society, police officers are seen patrolling the streets armed with satellite-guided truncheons, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, and biology and religious education classes have recently been merged. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velon's national animal is the piggus chunkus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the donut hole.
