The Martian occupied Europe of Middle Vers is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Asseylum Vers Allusia II with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, triple-decker prams, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.98 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 65.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Versian economy, worth 926 trillion Versian credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 232,703 Versian credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,164,678 per year while the poor average 26,113, a ratio of 44.6 to 1.

Edutainment video games are taking Middle Vers's students to the next level, the government-sponsored autobiography 'An Empress Asseylum Vers Allusia II For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Empress Asseylum Vers Allusia II's supporters, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. 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 220,550th in the world and 487th in First World Order for Nudest, with 7.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
