The Void Conglomerate of Sticks and Skulls is a massive, safe nation, ruled by the Wings of Aether with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.382 billion 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 Law & Order, Defence, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icathia. The average income tax rate is 46%, but much higher for the wealthy. 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.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and elections are outlawed and a hairstylist has recently received a government appointment. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. 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 91st in 10000 Islands and 6,759th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 15 Whatever.
