The Republic of Velahor is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Henry Ryan with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, smutty television, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.867 billion Velahorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bozeman. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Velahorian economy, worth 601 trillion Beers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 155,597 Beers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 551,737 per year while the poor average 31,652, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

The arms industry is strictly regulated, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", international terrorists often get their weapons supply in Velahor, and takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Velahor's national animal is the Bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Velahor is ranked 10,297th in the world and 8th in Libertatem for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,913.1 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
