OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.496 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 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 8,968 trillion gold dusts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 398,680 gold dusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

New homeowners go furniture hunting with crowbars, the full title of Hon Dusty Dustican Vcte Mgve MF VDLM GCDE runs to several pages, the military will start wars with other nations on a lark, and economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation. 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 470th in the world and 8th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 15,078.85 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
