The Universal Union of The V O I D is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Overseer Galdon with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.701 billion Voidborne 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Complex. The average income tax rate is 73.4%.

The all-consuming Voidborne economy, worth a remarkable 3,472 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 221,171 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, the government is a law unto itself, arthritic citizens seem underrepresented at royal meet-and-greets, and Voidborne caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The V O I D's national animal is the Entity, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Voidism.

The V O I D is ranked 17,489th in the world and 1st in V O I D D O M I N I O N for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 5,065.27 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
