The Supranational Confederation of Veleste is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Stupebant Spettro with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.067 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, with Industry, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port of Caneva. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Velestean economy, worth a remarkable 1,841 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 260,586 labour notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, Max Barry is this year's Miss Veleste, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Veleste's national animal is the Red ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Veleste is ranked 17,829th in the world and 4th in Novo Brasil for Most Politically Free, scoring 82.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
