The Community of Dustwind2 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.021 billion Dustwind2ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dustwind2ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,118 trillion Stardusts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 162,683 Stardusts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, Leader has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, and shipping canals are a bit like unimaginative cheese shops -- filled with debris. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dustwind2's national animal is the Unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dustwind2 is ranked 8,338th in the world and 130th in 10000 Islands for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.13 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
