The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.393 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, 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 a remarkable 8,963 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 400,282 gold dusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Sufferology now admits men and women into its clergy, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness', and manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job. 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 236,405th in the world and 899th in 10000 Islands for Most Primitive, scoring -391.75 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
