Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Velossia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Deneth Aleski with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 16.922 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, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. 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 3,304 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 76,088th in the world and 2,173rd in Balder for Most Extreme, scoring 17.45 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
