The Martian Empire of Middle Vers is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Asseylum Vers Allusia II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ritual sacrifices, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.83 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mineros. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Versian economy, worth 808 trillion Versian credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 211,163 Versian credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 937,621 per year while the poor average 29,649, a ratio of 31.6 to 1.

Not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence, the navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, and adultery has been made a capital offence. 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 176,351st in the world and 374th in First World Order for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -5.48 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
