The Community of 0x00 is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its public floggings, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 453 million Null Bytes are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Stack. The average income tax rate is 61.0%.

The powerhouse Null economy, worth 40.1 trillion bytes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,562 bytes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Counselors diagnose their clients with motherboard complexes, street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, and the new one byte coin also makes a handy throwing-star. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 0x00's national animal is the RAM, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

0x00 is ranked 132,068th in the world and 48th in Bytes for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -1.41 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
