People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 31.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Vara 6ian economy, worth 46.8 trillion Object Permanences a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,904 Object Permanences, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, out-of-work actors say they can't complain, and standing on one leg in public is a criminal offence.

Vara 6's national animal is the Question Mark, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
