The Imperium of Velon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by SQUEE with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 41.055 billion velonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of poopopolis. The average income tax rate is 7.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming velonian economy, worth a remarkable 9,772 trillion donut holes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 238,038 donut holes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A shocking number of estate planners are beneficiaries of their clients' wills, poopopolis has restaurants serving every meat from aardvark to zebra, welfare recipients are milking the government for all they've got, and returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site. Crime is totally unknown. Velon's national animal is the piggus chonkus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Velon is ranked 107,100th in the world and 2,376th in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9,109.03 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
