|Leader||Generalissimo Attero Dirotskiyy|
|Faith||a Cult of Personality|
The Dear Leader of Vetelo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Generalissimo Attero Dirotskiyy with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 10.634 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 morass — prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. 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 2,321 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. Average income is an amazing 218,293 USSD Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Bins outnumber trees in city parks, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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.
