The Dear Leader of Vetelo is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Generalissimo Attero Dirotskiyy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 10.065 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 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 2,187 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 217,323 USSD Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The judicial branch is strongly influenced by the Communist Party, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, and fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back. 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 168,950th in the world and 231st in USSD for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -22.91 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
