The Nomadic Tribes of Tuskeny is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, avowedly heterosexual populace, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.284 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, although Spirituality and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Education receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 15.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Tusken economy, worth 449 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 Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, 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 104,853 Skulls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and foreign envoys that want to visit Tuskeny now have to navigate real minefields in addition to the political ones. Crime is pervasive, 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 149,366th in the world and 4th in Scadrial for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.4 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
