The ℌᴏʟʏ 𝔅ʏᴢᴀɴᴛɪɴᴇ 𝔈ᴍᴘɪʀᴇ of Varangian Rus is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Tsar Aleksandr the Terrible with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.896 billion Varangians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tsargård on the Dnieper. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Varangian economy, worth 702 trillion bezants a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 242,653 bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, many in Varangian Rus are born in the purple, and politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Varangian Rus's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Byzantine Orthodox.

Varangian Rus is ranked 21,963rd in the world and 7th in The Horde for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,071.82 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
