The Community of Velandomew is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vautrin Morques with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.093 billion Velandomewians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vellanville. The average income tax rate is 39.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Velandomewian economy, worth 133 trillion Vellandes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 122,440 Vellandes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Velandomew, colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Horse', corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks, and waste is frequently shipped to other countries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velandomew's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Velandomew is ranked 17,396th in the world and 464th in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 78.62 on the Human Development Index.
