The Void of Dustwind is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.414 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 concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palace of Dust. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Gambling and Retail.
Political activists are routinely executed, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Dustwind with a very polite populace, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. 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.
