The Kingdom of Velosia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Tohmas IX with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.926 billion Velosians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ethalstad. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Velosian economy, worth 193 trillion talons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,279 talons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bizarre-looking creatures called 'seadragondogs' dominate wildlife preserves, the government is pouring billions into replacement brains, one does not simply walk into the tundra, and the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velosia's national animal is the seadragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Velosia is ranked 38,881st in the world and 181st in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,900.08 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
