The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.185 billion Dustwindians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 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 8,540 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 403,158 gold dusts, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 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 225,022nd in the world and 1,502nd in 10000 Islands for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -24.7 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
