The Queendom of Middle Vers is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Asseylum Vers Allusia II with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.329 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 45.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Versian economy, worth 580 trillion 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,388 credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,009,217 per year while the poor average 14,344, a ratio of 70.4 to 1.

Politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots, it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, and the nation's reputation for treachery has left it sidelined on the international stage. 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 Christianity.

Middle Vers is ranked 2,737th in the world and 2nd in First World Order for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9,448.02 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
