The Holy Orange Zombie of Varisland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Hubert Gust with a fair hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.237 billion Varislandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 68.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Varislandic economy, worth 164 trillion Varislandic marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 132,712 Varislandic marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

It is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up, several inches are being added to first class seating, and pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches. Crime is totally unknown. Varisland's national animal is the Monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Oranjeism.

Varisland is ranked 208,022nd in the world and 9,198th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.65 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
