The Dictatorship of Velion is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Zebith with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.009 billion Velionians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of IronWolf. The average income tax rate is 70.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Velionian economy, worth 986 trillion Crekuchings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 197,016 Crekuchings, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", and slavery has been abolished. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Velion is ranked 168,355th in the world and 259th in The United Federations for Least Corrupt Governments, with 43.76 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
