The Empire of Velly is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 523 million Vellyians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luscious. The average income tax rate is 39.1%.

The thriving Vellyian economy, worth 37.8 trillion rupees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,361 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens sport solarium-kissed tans that are perfectly even except for the occasional melanoma, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, school football matches are usually five-a-side, and the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Velly's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Velly is ranked 32,517th in the world and 1,791st in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 5.87 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
