The Zero But Not Null of 0x30 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.241 billion 0x30ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of vmlinuz. The average income tax rate is 26.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong 0x30ian economy, worth 93.1 trillion bytes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,015 bytes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

In the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism", the Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 0x30's national animal is the RAM, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

0x30 is ranked 227,257th in the world and 204th in Bytes for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring zero on the Societal Mobility Rating.
