The Zero-One Industries of Versatran is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by DX Machina with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.851 billion Machinists hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hovercraft Central. The average income tax rate is 38.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Versatran Industries economy, worth 748 trillion Padds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 262,373 Padds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', bars are packed at all hours, and DX Machina's new office is 6 by 8 feet with steel walls and a barred door. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Versatran's national animal is the Sentinel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Unity.

Versatran is ranked 2,887th in the world and 9th in Spiritus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 8,376.26 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
