The Federal Republic of Vielena is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Albrecht von Lwe with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.9 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bervien. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vielenan economy, worth 284 trillion Viel Kotsars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,131 Viel Kotsars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, adults have never outgrown their fear of monsters, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, and government agents stalk the aisles of grocery stores for out-of-stock medications. 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 103,415th in the world and 19th in Hiyamashu for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,798.47 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
