The Republic of Varnigodsk is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vladimir Vladislavovych Grodsky with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, aversion to nipples, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.01 billion Varnigodskians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varnigorod. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Varnigodskian economy, worth a remarkable 1,674 trillion Varnillian Rubles 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 185,830 Varnillian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International tensions are high as Varnigodsk threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, funeral mourners ridesharing with the deceased are encouraged to sit on the coffin to save room, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Varnigodsk's national animal is the Aquila Heliaca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular.

Varnigodsk is ranked 250,335th in the world and 6,682nd in Lazarus for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -13.76 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
