Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Varsala is a small, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 45 million Varsalans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Varsalan economy, worth 1.58 trillion kublos 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 Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 35,110 kublos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Varsala City make great practice for foreign snipers, voting district maps are said to resemble a tyrannosaurus eating the capital, according to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Varsala's national animal is the Two Headed Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Varsala is ranked 92,506th in the world and 165th in The Internationale for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 860.21 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
