The Apathetic State of Velarin is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Ranic Tolaris with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.877 billion Velarins are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Velarina. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Velarin economy, worth 252 trillion Vels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 87,649 Vels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and the comic book series 'Ranic Tolaris and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime is totally unknown. Velarin's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Velarin is ranked 25,944th in the world and 855th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,053.85 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
