The Enclave of New Velka is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Archon Setne with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.653 billion Velkans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harramora. The average income tax rate is 66.9%.

The thriving Velkan economy, worth 261 trillion Imperial Veig Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,518 Imperial Veig Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Harramora is a police state during international summits, businessmen walk out of meetings halfway because their shift is over, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Velka's national animal is the Dodo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Triat.

New Velka is ranked 49,448th in the world and 626th in the West Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 261 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
