The Dear Leader of Vetelo is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Supreme Commissar Cristhian Stuani with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 9.523 billion Vetelonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miguel. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Vetelonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,068 trillion USSD Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 217,214 USSD Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bars are packed at all hours, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and singing in public is only allowed if you are singing the praise of the Motherland. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vetelo's national animal is the Yakut Kiwi, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a Cult of Personality.

Vetelo is ranked 62nd in the world and 1st in USSD for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 16,352.57 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
