The Void Cult

Population707 million

CapitalThe Abyss

AnimalFinal Shape

The Empire of The Void Cult is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 707 million Void Cultists 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Abyss. The average income tax rate is 40.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Void Cultian economy, worth 58.2 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,286 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and property values in suburbs have nosedived after the middle class were forced to live next door to ethnic minorities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Void Cult's national animal is the Final Shape, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Void Cult is ranked 44,004th in the world and 1,996th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 66.17 on the Human Development Index.
