Middle Vers

Population3.543 billion

LeaderQueen Asseylum Vers Allusia II


The Paese privo di coronavirus of Middle Vers is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Asseylum Vers Allusia II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.543 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 53.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Versian economy, worth 652 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 184,097 credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, the nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime, casino tax breaks are even bigger than their jackpots, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. 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 Neo-Violetism.

Middle Vers is ranked 118,872nd in the world and 199th in First World Order for Fattest Citizens, with 9.76 Obesity Rate.
