The Kingdom of Din taiko is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by DIN AZMI with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.794 billion Din taikoans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Din City. The average income tax rate is 67.0%.

The all-consuming Din taikoan economy, worth 237 trillion DTS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 84,967 DTS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Arriving late for dinner is considered the height of selfishness, carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, and radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Din taiko's national animal is the LEOPARD, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is ISLAM.

Din taiko is ranked 124,670th in the world and 4,983rd in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -6.26 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
