The Nomadic Tribes of Tuskeny is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.905 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 are ignored. The average income tax rate is 19.2%.

The powerhouse Tusken economy, worth 991 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 125,450 Skulls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Homeless people are frequently charged with trespassing on public property, women find themselves saying "my eyes are up here" more often than they used to, in government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants, and the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 61,060th in the world and 2,981st in Lazarus for Largest Governments, scoring 17 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
