The Democratic Republic of The Void Territories is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Sophia T Hibiscus-Fortuna with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.574 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 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 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Voidian economy, worth 753 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 114,663 Novas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, the newest shade developed by The Void Territories's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. 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 1,839th in the world and 19th in Forest for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 60,124.08 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
