The People's Republic of Varayusha is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Underlord with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 22.315 billion Varayushans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Underwarren Prime. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Varayushan economy, worth an astonishing 16,113 trillion toggle-bolts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 722,095 toggle-bolts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Varayusha's national animal is the icefang, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is loyalty to the State.

Varayusha is ranked 363rd in the world and 20th in the South Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 91,231.06 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
