The Kingdom of Velosia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Tohmas IX with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.56 billion Velosians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ethalstad. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Velosian economy, worth 229 trillion talons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,416 talons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Velosian Space Agency, gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velosia's national animal is the seadragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Velosia is ranked 38,943rd in the world and 524th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 70.1 on the Human Development Index.
