The Community of 0x00 is a tiny, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 16 million Null Bytes have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Public Transport, and Education. The average income tax rate is 28.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Null economy, worth 568 billion bytes a year, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,548 bytes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and the government is under the thumb of countless special interests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 123,774th in the world and 20th in Bytes for Highest Poor Incomes, with 22,792.3 Standard Monetary Units.
