The Empire of Veliko is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Director Vortex with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.692 billion Velikites are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostorra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Velikoan economy, worth 376 trillion Scons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 222,304 Scons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 993,685 per year while the poor average 30,844, a ratio of 32.2 to 1.

Class clowns are frequently listed among the most dangerous criminals in the nation, the tenet of free speech is held dear, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Velikoan pirates, and elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Veliko's national animal is the Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Atheism.

Veliko is ranked 3,222nd in the world and 1st in The Free Economic Zone of Desertiania for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 646.87 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
