The Galactik Imperium of Velon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by SQUEE with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.702 billion velonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Public Transport, Healthcare, and Environment 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 1.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient velonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,575 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 an impressive 165,152 donut holes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', under love's heavy burden SQUEE sinks lower in the political right's esteem, and reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Velon's national animal is the piggus chunkus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Velon is ranked 110,990th in the world and 5,359th in The North Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 0.11 Stalins.
