Veltu was a major colony of the Nihydron Star Republic.
After the destruction of Nihydro II, the colony campaigned to become the new capital of the Nihydron Star Republic. However, when New Nihydro was chosen, the representatives from the colony walked out in protest and seceded from the Republic. They soon set-up a new government, with a President and a democratically elected Conclave. The government was proven stable well into 2627.
