The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.305 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 4,188 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 314,811 gold dusts, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,224,742 per year while the poor average 14,966, a ratio of 148 to 1.
Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, soldiers go to war dressed in cassocks and robes, the nation's entire cultural heritage is being auctioned off to the rich, and pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Dustwind's national animal is the scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sufferology.
