The Nomadic Tribes of Tuskeny is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.399 billion Tuskens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Education aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 19.9%.

The powerhouse Tusken economy, worth 769 trillion Skulls 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 a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Retail, and Basket Weaving. 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 120,188 Skulls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

One-word headlines are the norm in Tusken newspapers, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, twice-daily toilet inspection rotas for government buildings are archived for public appraisal, and people forget to eat because they are too busy singing Leader's praises. Crime is a major problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Tuskeny's national animal is the Bantha, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bantha-worship.

Tuskeny is ranked 197,995th in the world and 10th in Central Asia for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -12.08 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
