The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.149 billion Dustwindians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. 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 an astonishing 12,157 trillion gold dusts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 431,882 gold dusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Scorpion', colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Dustwindian Liberator", worrywarts have started advocating for a paint ban, and Dustwindians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 13,688th in the world and 191st in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 93.6 law-abiding acts per hour.
