The Republic of Velahor is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Henry Ryan with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.511 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 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Velahorian economy, worth 999 trillion Beers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,576 Beers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 512,857 per year while the poor average 34,212, a ratio of 15.0 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 141,273rd in the world and 4,757th in Osiris for Most Avoided, scoring 1.66 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
