The Willit and Booble of Veeblefetzer is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Skizziks upside down is Sʞᴉzzᴉʞs with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 13.996 billion Veebers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Veebeliever economy, worth 735 trillion belts a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 52,524 belts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The entire entry for Veeblefetzer in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', home education can sometimes be a load of bullocks, international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, and burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine. Crime is totally unknown. Veeblefetzer's national animal is the axolotl, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Kurtzman.

Veeblefetzer is ranked 197,517th in the world and 25th in Australia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.35 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
