The Republic of Varagnian Guardians is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.853 billion Varagnian Guardiansians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varagnian Guardians City. The average income tax rate is 54.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Varagnian Guardiansian economy, worth 619 trillion Daggers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 69,945 Daggers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and the Varagnian Guardians Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime is totally unknown. Varagnian Guardians's national animal is the Artic wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Varagnian Guardians is ranked 165,149th in the world and 4th in Sentagon for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 85.39 Tourists Per Hour.
