The Void Territories

Population5.667 billion

LeaderPresident Sophia Hibiscus


The Democratic Republic of The Void Territories is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Sophia Hibiscus with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.667 billion Voids are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalypso. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The all-consuming Voidian economy, worth 791 trillion Novas a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,705 Novas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Void Territories's national animal is the Squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Void Territories is ranked 113,788th in the world and 237th in Forest for Most Authoritarian, with 654.67 milliStalins.
