The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.406 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 receive no funds. 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 3,126 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 300,485 gold dusts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 971,133 per year while the poor average 70,262, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.
One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, the government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?', curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and political activists are routinely executed. 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.
