OF Emptiness

Population1.678 billion

LeaderLego Man


The Oceanian-like Republic of OF Emptiness is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lego Man with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.678 billion entrants are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emptia. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arstotzka economy, worth 231 trillion nuts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,107 nuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children, trespassers entering Lego Man's office are immediately vaporized, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. OF Emptiness's national animal is the book, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dystopianism.

OF Emptiness is ranked 182,993rd in the world and 7,456th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.91 Obesity Rate.
