The Democratic Republic of Veleburg is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Abna II with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.158 billion Veleburgians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Healthcare, although Administration, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mystica City. The average income tax rate is 62.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Veleburgian economy, worth 170 trillion Veleburgian Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,846 Veleburgian Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sick and dying are locked in their homes with a red "X" painted on the front door, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, and on-duty Air Veleburg flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Veleburg's national animal is the Abna Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Abnaism.

Veleburg is ranked 101,279th in the world and 179th in The Free Nations Region for Smartest Citizens, with 33.05 quips per hour.
