Symmetry between all null and all unbounded sets

Is there a greatest symmetry between

the set of all null sets

and

the set of all unbounded sets?

I was trying to ask what sets are closed under both addition and multiplication.

The null set, the set whose only member is zero, and the set of transfinite numbers come to mind.

Is this correct? Can you offer any other "unconventional" set(s)?

The set of even numbers fit in this category since for any two even numbers $a,b$ and their halves $c,d \in \mathbb{Z}$

$a+b = 2(c+d)$ even, and

$a \times b = 4(c \times d)$ also even.

Not super unconventional, but a property I find interesting.

I believe so, $0+0$ or $0 \times 0$ will of course be closed and given two transfinites, $p,q$, $p+q$ and $p \times q$ should be transfinite as well.

Any subring of the real numbers (or complex numbers if you prefer). Examples would be the rational numbers, the computable numbers, in fact any of the many subfields of the reals such as the rationals adjoined with $\sqrt 2$, etc.

Then there are the integers, and as mentioned the even integers.

I'm sure there are many more.
