The People's Republic of Varayusha is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Underlord with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, strictly enforced bedtime, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 22.377 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 16,224 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 725,053 toggle-bolts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. 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 184,219th in the world and 7,652nd in the South Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -401 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
