OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Void of Dustwind is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.611 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palace of Dust. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Gambling and Retail.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Dustwind Blood Tithe. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Dustwind's national animal is the scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Sufferology, and its currency is the gold dust.

Dustwind is ranked 24th in 10000 Islands and 1,813th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 185 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
