The Constitutional Monarchy of Velichiye is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 789 million Velichiyeans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Velichiyean economy, worth 24.6 trillion deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is 31,214 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, organ donation is compulsory, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velichiye's national animal is the kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Velichiye is ranked 179,081st in the world and 314th in Concord for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 278.77 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
