The Monarchial Empire of Varola is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King-Emperor Boris Welmington II with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.979 billion Varolans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Administration and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varolum. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Varolan economy, worth a remarkable 1,476 trillion Varoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 246,983 Varoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

King-Emperor Boris Welmington II's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime, and administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Varola's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ihdur.

Varola is ranked 156,349th in the world and 6,806th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 32.76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
