The Universal Union of The V O I D is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Overseer Galdon with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, frequent executions, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.755 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.1%.

The all-consuming Voidborne economy, worth a remarkable 2,038 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 189,540 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 699,278 per year while the poor average 36,252, a ratio of 19.3 to 1.

Business leaders are mailing Overseer Galdon forged birth certificates in a bid to win their rivals as serfs, anyone dissenting from the state ideology is declared "mentally ill" and whisked away in a straitjacket, military spending is on the increase, and corrupt industrial practices are spreading like a plague. 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 130,062nd in the world and 1st in V O I D D O M I N I O N for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring zero on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
