The Republic of Versatran is a large, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed population of 87 million Versatrans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 5.6%.

The strong Versatran economy, worth 6.64 trillion B166ERs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 76,368 B166ERs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Cubicles often double as graves as citizens literally work themselves to death, citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Versatran's national animal is the Sentinel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Versatran is ranked 65,770th in the world and 92nd in Spiritus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,240.28 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
