The Free Land of Varavano is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Matteo Zuccarelli with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.165 billion Varavanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lilianaso. The income tax rate is 100%.

The very strong Varavanoan economy, worth a remarkable 4,647 trillion Vanoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 230,486 Vanoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, Varavanoan housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Matteo Zuccarelli, and you're only as old as you feel. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Varavano's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Varavano is ranked 460th in the world and 5th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 84.94 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
