The Nomadic Peoples of Varhemia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Federal Council with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.331 billion Varhemians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crysanthium City. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Varhemian economy, worth 185 trillion Varns 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 79,791 Varns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Owning a fishing rod can cause you to be subject to military questioning, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Federal Council's wardrobe, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Varhemia's national animal is the Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Universal Paganism.

Varhemia is ranked 92,699th in the world and 163rd in Anteria for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51 Whatever.
