The Democratic Republic of The Void Territories is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Sophia Hibiscus with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.143 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 Kalypso. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Voidian economy, worth 704 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 114,643 Novas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, and eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance. 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 95,356th in the world and 248th in Forest for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 127,898 Standard Monetary Units.
