The Winter Wasteland of Of Emptiness is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Demolitionist with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.058 billion Towers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blue Moon Space Station. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Flooded economy, worth a remarkable 1,866 trillion Coins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 369,023 Coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,150,047 per year while the poor average 90,980, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

Prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, violent criminals are doomed to be hunted by a psychotic billionaire, some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight, and curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net. 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 Normal Zombie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Fighting Zombies.

Of Emptiness is ranked 158,392nd in the world and 6,842nd in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 17.67 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
