The Federal Republic of Vielena is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Albrecht von Lwe with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.537 billion Vielenans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berwien. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vielenan economy, worth 340 trillion Viel Kotsars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,155 Viel Kotsars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major boxing matches are held in government buildings, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vielena's national animal is the fish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Vielena is ranked 38,976th in the world and 13th in Hiyamashu for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 8,063.32 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
