The People's Republic of Varayusha is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Underlord with an even hand, and renowned for its lack of airports, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 23.56 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 17,161 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 728,411 toggle-bolts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were. 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 229,637th in the world and 8,450th in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.7 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
