The Democratic Republic of The Void Territories is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Sophia Hibiscus with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.533 billion Voids are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, 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 95.5%.

The all-consuming Voidian economy, worth 613 trillion Novas a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,256 Novas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, being dead no longer has any benefits, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Voidian politicians, and Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in The Void Territories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 199,764th in the world and 373rd in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -15.13 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
