Vara 29

The Republic of Vara 29 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and enslaved workforce. The cynical, devout population of 2.809 billion Vara 29ians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.9%.

The powerhouse Vara 29ian economy, worth 276 trillion baht 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 a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 98,396 baht, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of baht are being blown on orbital weapons development, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril, and the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vara 29's national animal is the turtle, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Vara 29 is ranked 44,185th in the world and 1st in Galactica for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,862.26 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
