The Void of Precisely Nothing is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nobody with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 19.896 billion Naughts live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nowhere. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Precisely Nothingian economy, worth a remarkable 4,647 trillion Bosons a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 233,610 Bosons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,080,313 per year while the poor average 30,476, a ratio of 35.4 to 1.

Government solves problems by tossing money at the nearest geek, Nowhere's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, and the nation's biggest export is stupidity. Crime is totally unknown. Precisely Nothing's national animal is the Tardigrade, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Precisely Nothing is ranked 96,524th in the world and 308th in Europeia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,836.64 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
