The Enclave of New Velka is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Carro Pino with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.533 billion Velkans 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harramora. The average income tax rate is 71.3%.

The powerhouse Velkan economy, worth 496 trillion Imperial Veig Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,599 Imperial Veig Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Recognizing the Velkan flag qualifies you for citizenship, the internet has been placed under government control, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and NV-SPAN features senators wrestling with ever-increasing production elements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Velka's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Triat.

New Velka is ranked 160,180th in the world and 3,995th in the West Pacific for Most Stationary, with 21.74100691908 Days.
