Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Cipherian Wonderland of The V O I D is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Bill Cipher with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.102 billion Cipherians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, 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 The Great Triangle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.9%.

The powerhouse Cipherian economy, worth a remarkable 1,288 trillion Ciphers 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 181,377 Ciphers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,031,232 per year while the poor average 15,540, a ratio of 66.4 to 1.

The Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, in a fit of passion Bill Cipher has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over The V O I D. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. The V O I D's national animal is the Weirdness, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cipherianism.

The V O I D is ranked 25,678th in the world and 1st in V O I D D O M I N I O N for Most Extreme, scoring 27.89 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
