The ǝƃɐɹ ǝɥʇ ll∀ ʇsnſ sI ǝH of Varanius is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by snouᴉǝɹɹoH ǝɥʇ ɐɹɐΛ with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.318 billion uɹoq ʎlʍǝN are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ɐᴉʇoƃʎZ. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient uɹoq ʎlʍǝN economy, worth a remarkable 1,020 trillion pɹɐƆ pǝʇɐlɟuIs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 161,479 pɹɐƆ pǝʇɐlɟuIs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and digital novelty coins make for surprising vanguards of the revolution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Varanius's national animal is the uɹoqʍǝN, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is suoᴉʇsǝnQ ɟo ʞooq ƃᴉq ǝɥ┴.

Varanius is ranked 257,775th in the world and 6,736th in the West Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -16.91 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
