The Queendom of Veselica is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Queen Leia with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 5.409 billion Veselicans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lipica. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Veselican economy, worth 229 trillion lipas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,378 lipas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Tumbleweed drifts through the nation's shopping centres during the weekends, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children. Crime is totally unknown. Veselica's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Veselica is ranked 57,323rd in the world and 4th in The Flying Spaghetti Monster Lands for Most Stationary, with 213.9650713956 Days.
