Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Velossia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Deneth Aleski with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 14.569 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, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Velossian economy, worth a remarkable 2,830 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 194,281 velossian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. 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 2,998th in the world and 131st in Balder for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
