The Queen's State of Variola is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 14.928 billion Variolans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Variolan economy, worth 250 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 16,765 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Variola's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Variola is ranked 59,162nd in the world and 1st in Yaren for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,027.9 Tourists Per Hour.
