The Ruined Kingdom of Lesser Velutaria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Atēro den Blessi with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 11.099 billion Velutarians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vellun. The average income tax rate is 13.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vellish economy, worth a remarkable 1,251 trillion Īnis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 112,734 Īnis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Home renovation projects take decades to complete, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, the Vellish delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", and last minute own-goals raise the suspicious eyebrows of sporting authorities. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lesser Velutaria's national animal is the Blue-crested Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Khīnto.

Lesser Velutaria is ranked 105,359th in the world and 48th in Anteria for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 160,353 Standard Monetary Units.
