Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Velossia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Deneth Aleski with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.405 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Harmony. The average income tax rate is 41.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Velossian economy, worth a remarkable 2,788 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 193,576 velossian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, many aides in Deneth Aleski's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. 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 172,098th in the world and 4,404th in Balder for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 13.09 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
