Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Velossia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Deneth Aleski with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 16.393 billion Velossians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Harmony. The average income tax rate is 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Velossian economy, worth a remarkable 3,201 trillion velossian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 195,303 velossian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, Velossia's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velossia's national animal is the Palinese tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Velossia is ranked 34,840th in the world and 1,013th in Balder for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,888.66 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
