The Void Conglomerate of Sticks and Skulls is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Wings of Aether with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.071 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.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icathia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.1%.
The strong Sticks and Skullsian economy, worth 243 trillion Voidles a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration. Average income is 48,079 Voidles, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.
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, and its national religion is Wing Zero.
