The Martian occupied Europe of Middle Vers is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Asseylum Vers Allusia II with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.961 billion Versians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mineros. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Versian economy, worth 905 trillion Versian credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 228,668 Versian credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,124,846 per year while the poor average 26,545, a ratio of 42.4 to 1.

Many rural villagers have never been more than a day's horse-ride from their birthplace, every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, and games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middle Vers's national animal is the Terran, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Violetism.

Middle Vers is ranked 224,966th in the world and 510th in First World Order for Least Corrupt Governments, with 20.57 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
