Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.507 billion Dustwindians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Social Policy and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palace of Dust. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Dustwindian economy, worth a remarkable 4,268 trillion gold dusts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 315,999 gold dusts, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,157,182 per year while the poor average 16,769, a ratio of 128 to 1.

The entire health budget has been diverted into prolonging Dusty Dustican's life, the media have began calling the government treasury "Dusty Dustican's stash", directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Palace of Dust as a backdrop, and oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Dustwind's national animal is the scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sufferology.

Dustwind is ranked 79,005th in the world and 785th in 10000 Islands for Most Authoritarian, with 0.29 Stalins.
