Unisys 2200 series mainframe computers.  36 bit words, 1's complement arithmetic, word-addressable architecture.  Multi-processor and SMP since the early 1970's in the earlier versions of this architecture.  You might argue that Lua isn't likely to be found on this platform, though it supports an ANSI C complier, Java, etc.
