The People's Republic of Varayusha is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Underlord with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 23.765 billion Varayushans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Underwarren Prime. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Varayushan economy, worth an astonishing 17,304 trillion toggle-bolts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 728,152 toggle-bolts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, group hugs break out during floor votes, every school is receiving a brand new eraser, and a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Varayusha's national animal is the icefang, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is loyalty to the State.

Varayusha is ranked 110th in the world and 6th in the South Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 131,237.57 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
