The Void Territories

Population8.623 billion

LeaderPresident Sophia T Hibiscus-Fortuna


The Democratic Republic of The Void Territories is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Sophia T Hibiscus-Fortuna with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, digital currency, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.623 billion Voids are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ylvern. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Voidian economy, worth a remarkable 1,075 trillion Novas a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,755 Novas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times, up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, and guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 104,889th in the world and 141st in Forest for Most Extreme, scoring 21.48 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
