The People's Republic of Varayusha is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Underlord with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, otherworldly petting zoo, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 24.626 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, with Education, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda. 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 17,958 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 729,235 toggle-bolts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and a government program is underway to revitalize Varayusha's beaches. 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 5,412th in the world and 146th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 16,205.15 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
