The Commonwealth of Velossia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Deneth Aleski with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 18.002 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 Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Harmony. The average income tax rate is 44.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Velossian economy, worth a remarkable 3,545 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 196,940 velossian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", and Deneth Aleski's power is effectively nullified as no bill becomes law without the upper house's support. 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 34,339th in the world and 1,174th in Balder for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,665.04 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
