Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, smutty television, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.606 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, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, 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 3,192 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 300,991 gold dusts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 972,769 per year while the poor average 70,381, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Concussed scorpionball players cannot remember their lineup position, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, anyone dissenting from the state ideology is declared "mentally ill" and whisked away in a straitjacket, and all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers. 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.

Dustwind is ranked 21st in 10000 Islands and 1,225th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 7 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
