The Democratic Republic of Veleburg is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 423 million Veleburgians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mystica City. The average income tax rate is 48.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Veleburgian economy, worth 20.0 trillion Veleburgian Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,312 Veleburgian Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, group hugs break out during floor votes, the government seizes all major gold finds, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Veleburg's national animal is the Abna Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Veleburg is ranked 177,179th in the world and 304th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Economic Output, with 20.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
