The Kingdom of Varienland is a massive, genial nation, notable for its burgeoning Deer population. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.215 billion Varienlandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosenborg. The average income tax rate is 28.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Varienlandian economy, worth 82.3 trillion rigsdalers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,146 rigsdalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, and Varienland has designated Rosenborg as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Varienland's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
