The Void Conglomerate of Sticks and Skulls is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by the Wings of Aether with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.706 billion Sticks and Skullsians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icathia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, all guns must be registered, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and airport security is provided by private companies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sticks and Skulls's national animal is the Skeleton, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Wing Zero, and its currency is the Voidle.

Sticks and Skulls is ranked 398th in 10000 Islands and 28,755th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 107 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
