The Republic of Versatran is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.182 billion Versatrans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hovercraft Central. The average income tax rate is 15.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Versatran economy, worth 215 trillion Padds 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, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. 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 an impressive 181,972 Padds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Padds each year, the Versatran Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams, and janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Versatran's national animal is the Sentinel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Versatran is ranked 21,870th in the world and 33rd in Spiritus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 277,944.21 Standard Monetary Units.
