Vara 73

Population2.892 billion

The Republic of Vara 73 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, ritual sacrifices, and ubiquitous missile silos. The cynical, devout population of 2.892 billion Vara 73ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Vara 73ian economy, worth 311 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,672 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 341,929 per year while the poor average 25,831, a ratio of 13.2 to 1.

The recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vara 73's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vara 73 is ranked 39,130th in the world and 254th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,253.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
