The People's Republic of Varayusha is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Underlord with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 23.367 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, although Education, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important. 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 17,003 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 727,688 toggle-bolts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Varayusha, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity. 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 167,424th in the world and 6,317th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 79.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
