The Republic of Vara 99 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, prohibition of alcohol, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.966 billion Vara 99ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 48.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Vara 99ian economy, worth 256 trillion guilders 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 86,438 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, and poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vara 99's national animal is the cobra, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Vara 99 is ranked 118,070th in the world and 3,573rd in Osiris for Smartest Citizens, with 30.82 quips per hour.
