The Enclave of New Velka is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Archon Setne with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.353 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 prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harramora. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Velkan economy, worth 351 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 104,949 Imperial Veig Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

New Velka successfully hosted the the West Pacific Olympics, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Triat.

New Velka is ranked 34,107th in the world and 899th in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 64.3 on the Human Development Index.
