The United Socialist States of Varisland is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 716 million Varislandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varastad. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Varislandic economy, worth 78.2 trillion Varislandic marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 109,154 Varislandic marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, and neighboring nations are tired of Varisland's big fish stories. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Varisland's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Varisland is ranked 6,841st in the world and 366th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 124.17 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
