The Republic of Veltora is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, compulsory military service, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 464 million Veltorians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosvik. The average income tax rate is 36.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Veltoric economy, worth 37.0 trillion Kukres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 79,828 Kukres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Veltora's national animal is the Great White Shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Veltora is ranked 110,755th in the world and 151st in The Western Isles for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
