The Endless Manpower of Vetelo II is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 2.627 billion Vetelonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miguel. The average income tax rate is 47.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Vetelonian economy, worth 80.9 trillion USSD Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,807 USSD Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, Vetelo II has designated Miguel as its capital city, builders across Vetelo II are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and when people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vetelo II's national animal is the Internationale Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vetelo II is ranked 70,449th in the world and 61st in Conf of Traditional Socialist Nations for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 86.89 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
