The Golden Endless Dominion of Nullity is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chi with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.837 billion Nullities are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Administration also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silence. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Null economy, worth 450 trillion Gold Lights a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 158,623 Gold Lights, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,435,780 per year while the poor average 2,080, a ratio of 690 to 1.

The "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, the country is littered with broken homes, and crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nullity's national animal is the Star Leprechaun, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Nevermore.

Nullity is ranked 511th in the world and 9th in the Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 689.97 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
