Of Emptiness

LeaderFE1 Guide


The Flood Escaper of Of Emptiness is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by FE1 Guide with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.662 billion Escapees 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blue Moon Space Station. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Flooded economy, worth 621 trillion wins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 233,326 wins, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

If you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise, jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is, petitions to the government are being used to insulate politicians' office walls, and possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Of Emptiness's national animal is the buddy, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Floodism.

Of Emptiness is ranked 40,786th in the world and 1,341st in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 77.71 insults per minute.
