The Supranational Confederation of Veleste is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stupebant Spettro with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.303 billion Velestians 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Defense, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port of Caneva. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Velestean economy, worth a remarkable 2,301 trillion labour notes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 277,150 labour notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public parks are littered with cigarette butts, the news is showing footage of Stupebant Spettro bullying an old man to the point of tears, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Velestians, and conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Veleste's national animal is the Buteogallus solitarius, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Veleste is ranked 241,193rd in the world and 55th in Novo Brasil for Highest Disposable Incomes, with zero Standard Monetary Units.
