The Republic of Vara 5 is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 761 million Vara 5ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Environment receives no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.1%.
The Vara 5ian economy, worth 31.4 trillion Object Permanences a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,205 Object Permanences, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 125,874 per year while the poor average 10,455, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.
The education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, political candidates who don't release their birth certificates are presumed to have been born in Maxtopia, and oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. Vara 5's national animal is the Question Mark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
