The Interim Order of Veleste is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Moro-Aldo with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.971 billion Velestians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port of Caneva. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Velestean economy, worth a remarkable 1,254 trillion labour notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 252,402 labour notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, and every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Veleste's national animal is the Red ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Veleste is ranked 31,838th in the world and 36th in Novo Brasil for Most Influential, scoring 662 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
