The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, zero percent divorce rate, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.169 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Law & Order 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 8,523 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 402,621 gold dusts, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

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 3,270th in the world and 65th in 10000 Islands for Highest Poor Incomes, with 156,018.54 Standard Monetary Units.
