The People's Republic of Varayusha is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Underlord with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 27.576 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 20,220 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 733,272 toggle-bolts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, the government spends billions to protect Varayusha from a disaster that is one in a million, the world still seems flat to some people in space, and guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites. 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 277,699th in the world and 12,117th in the South Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.04 crimes per hour.
