Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Velossia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Deneth Aleski with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.759 billion Velossians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Harmony. The average income tax rate is 42.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Velossian economy, worth a remarkable 2,874 trillion velossian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 194,789 velossian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Velossian language, and every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velossia's national animal is the Palinese tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Velossia is ranked 3,851st in the world and 94th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 89.43 on the Human Development Index.
