The Republic of Variz is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Albert Mensah with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 987 million Varizians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beulah. The average income tax rate is 57.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Varizian economy, worth 115 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 117,301 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, the VBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, much of Variz's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Variz's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Variz is ranked 100,684th in the world and 17th in Lorania for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,406.72 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
