The Empire of Velion is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Zebith with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.809 billion Velionians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of IronWolf. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Velionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,733 trillion Crekuchings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 222,022 Crekuchings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Velionians believe manners maketh the leader, money grows on trees, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velion's national animal is the Timber Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Velion is ranked 18,001st in the world and 11th in The United Federations for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,540.58 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
