|Capital||Palace of Dust|
The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, flagrant waste-dumping, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.947 billion Dustwindians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, 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 7,419 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 391,584 gold dusts, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,620,432 per year while the poor average 62,125, a ratio of 26.1 to 1.
Nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, the nation has declared war on all passing comets, ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing, and the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Dustwind's national animal is the scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sufferology.
