The Void of Dustwind is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dusty Dustican with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.025 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 an astonishing 10,564 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 422,148 gold dusts, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,430,441 per year while the poor average 35,144, a ratio of 69.2 to 1.

Diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", cities are engulfed by smog, the nation's entire cultural heritage is being auctioned off to the rich, and Dustwind has become a gigantic dustbowl filled with tourists and mean desperados. 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.

Dustwind is ranked 343rd in the world and 6th in 10000 Islands for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 16,147.68 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
