The Republic of Velaland is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 575 million Velish are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abyadtusan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.4%.

The thriving Velish economy, worth 37.0 trillion Aliras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 64,418 Aliras, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 231,697 per year while the poor average 12,819, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

Many in Velaland are born in the purple, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in Europe, and foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Velaland's national animal is the dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Velaland is ranked 164,510th in the world and 960th in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 935.22 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
