The United Socialist States of VRN is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Comrade with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.628 billion VRNians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of VRN City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.7%.

The frighteningly efficient VRNian economy, worth a remarkable 1,979 trillion Rubleses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 229,424 Rubleses, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,339,309 per year while the poor average 18,490, a ratio of 72.4 to 1.

Vehicle strikes into low bridges are on the increase, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it, and the only record being broken at sporting events is the highest death toll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VRN's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Breathing.

VRN is ranked 5,497th in the world and 9th in Wintercrest for Largest Governments, scoring 39.96 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
