The Void of Dustwind is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.987 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.
Curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, most academic research has ground to a halt, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, and nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids. 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.
