The Free Land of Varavano is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Julia Vernatti with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.65 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 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 frighteningly efficient Varavanoan economy, worth a remarkable 6,204 trillion Vanoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 273,946 Vanoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, the lactose-intolerant are force-fed cheese products with predictably gassy results, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and some paycheques only arrive every 12 to 24 weeks. 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.

Varavano is ranked 479th in the world and 3rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 98.81 on the Human Development Index.
