The Unwavering Emptiness

Population262 million

CapitalNihil Bo÷tes Urbis


The Dominion of The Unwavering Emptiness is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 262 million Underdwellers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nihil Bo÷tes Urbis. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Emptessian economy, worth 12.6 trillion Nulls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 48,178 Nulls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, the new Spectre Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls, leading ethologists are being investigated for illegal electoral interference, and it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations. Crime is totally unknown. The Unwavering Emptiness's national animal is the Spectre, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Unwavering Emptiness is ranked 82,317th in the world and 10th in The Gay Motherland for Most Primitive, scoring -1.91 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
