The Iymârivshen of Lesser Velutaria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Rho den Aehl with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.304 billion Velutarians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal government prioritizes Industry, although Defense, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volustia. The average income tax rate is 5.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vellish economy, worth 486 trillion Inis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 113,054 Inis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, army uniforms are replaced en masse to accommodate adult soldiers, the nation's historic treasures have been sold off to Maxtopia's "Museum of Vellish Artifacts That They're Too Stupid to Appreciate", and back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lesser Velutaria's national animal is the Blue-crested Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Rygalic Pantheon.

Lesser Velutaria is ranked 37,598th in the world and 52nd in Anteria for Highest Economic Output, with 486 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
