Velvet Elvis

The Principality of Velvet Elvis is a small, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 23 million Velvet Elvisians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Public Transport, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The strong Velvet Elvisian economy, worth 888 billion velvets a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 38,646 velvets, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 164,377 per year while the poor average 5,850, a ratio of 28.1 to 1.

The subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words'. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Velvet Elvis's national animal is the Elvis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Velvet Elvis is ranked 216,592nd in the world and 32nd in Founderless for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
