The Democratic Republic of The Void Territories is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Sophia Hibiscus with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.569 billion Voids love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken 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 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Voidian economy, worth 356 trillion Novas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,685 Novas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's no representation without taxation, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, populations of two-headed Squids have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. 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 39,183rd in the world and 139th in Forest for Highest Economic Output, with 356 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
