The Kiwi Socialist Republic of Vetelo II is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Commissar Attero Dirotskiyy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 3.206 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miguel. The average income tax rate is 48.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Vetelonian economy, worth 100.0 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 31,189 USSD Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Builders across Vetelo II are blocked up with orders for new public loos, 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, Supreme Commissar Attero Dirotskiyy has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, and Supreme Commissar Attero Dirotskiyy is the self-declared God of all Vetelo II. 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 59,143rd in the world and 62nd in Conf of Traditional Socialist Nations for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,515.98 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
