The Republic of Vara 33 is a huge, safe nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 663 million Vara 33ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 36.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Vara 33ian economy, worth 26.8 trillion florins 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 40,496 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Vara 33ian weed picker are way up, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, and back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vara 33's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vara 33 is ranked 200,993rd in the world and 4,411th in Artificial Solar System for Rudest Citizens, with 26.81 Insults Per Minute.
