The Arstotzka Union of Of Emptiness is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Inspector with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.232 billion entrants are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 44.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arstotzka economy, worth 155 trillion entry approval stamps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,289 entry approval stamps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, female restaurant chefs are not allowed to have male customers, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Of Emptiness's national animal is the book, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dystopianism.

Of Emptiness is ranked 59,363rd in the world and 2,610th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,110.21 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
