The United States of Varisland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Hubert Gust with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.571 billion Varislandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varastad. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Varislandic economy, worth 395 trillion Varislandic marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 153,858 Varislandic marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Varastad Times is sold out, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. Crime is totally unknown. Varisland's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Oranjeism.

Varisland is ranked 136,305th in the world and 5,000th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
