The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.753 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't 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 3,241 trillion gold dusts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 301,437 gold dusts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 974,212 per year while the poor average 70,485, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.
The nation has declared war on all passing comets, assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and oracles predict landslide victories for Dusty Dustican for the next 50 years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Dustwind's national animal is the scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sufferology.
