The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.695 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 minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Law & Order 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 8,369 trillion gold dusts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 404,427 gold dusts, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,254,682 per year while the poor average 36,217, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, small shoes often wash up on the beach, vacationing Dustwindians expect to be treated as royalty, and spousal homicide rates have tripled in recent months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 208,817th in the world and 2,129th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.89 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
