The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.81 billion Dustwindians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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 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 10,459 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 421,595 gold dusts, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,414,788 per year while the poor average 35,517, a ratio of 68.0 to 1.

Wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them, competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, it is customary to begin the summer with a fasting ritual in which people eat nothing but kumquat smoothies, and government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest. 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 1,807th in the world and 19th in 10000 Islands for Most Patriotic, with 78.76 flags saluted per person per day.
