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 remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.138 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 tiny government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Public Transport and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 1.2%.

The large but stagnant velonian economy, worth 458 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 common. Average income is 17,530 donut holes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

White strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, and people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns. 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 813th in the world and 42nd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.73 Years.
