The Supranational Confederation of Veleste is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Stupebant Spettro with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.363 billion Velestians 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 large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port of Caneva. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Velestean economy, worth a remarkable 2,319 trillion labour notes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 277,340 labour notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Velestians seem to be catching more chills, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Veleste's national animal is the Buteogallus solitarius, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Veleste is ranked 87,749th in the world and 37th in Novo Brasil for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,329.54 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
