Velarius VII is the single richest and most advanced world in the Velarian Confederation, and also its capitol. It's almost a double planet, with a giant moon nearly half the size of the planet itself. The two are tidally locked; Velarius has a day almost 10 standard days long.
Velarius is densely populated, with nearly 10 billion people. A space elevator provides easy access to shuttles linking Velarius with its moon Andarion, which is itself home to another 600 million Velarians. The energetic and adaptable Velarians have also settled on many other worlds, making them the most numerous people in the Confederation.
