Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Galactik Imperium of Velon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by SQUEE with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.67 billion velonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Public Transport and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of poopopolis. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but underdeveloped velonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,200 trillion donut holes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,005 donut holes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, and the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Velon's national animal is the piggus chunkus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Velon is ranked 144,458th in the world and 7,173rd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -7.75 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
