The People's Republic of Velkanika is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mikhail Utkin with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 19.624 billion Velkanikans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kuvongrad. The average income tax rate is 53.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Velkanikan economy, worth a remarkable 2,227 trillion Teurons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,511 Teurons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, black market eau de toilette is made in bathroom labs across the nation, and Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velkanika's national animal is the Red Tailed Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Velkanika is ranked 3,770th in the world and 1st in Greater Olympus for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,131.59 Tourists Per Hour.
