The Kingdom of Din taiko is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by DIN AZMI with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, enslaved workforce, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.779 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic 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 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Din taikoan economy, worth 438 trillion DTS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is 91,774 DTS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government's approval ratings go down while its turnover rate goes up, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', the legal profession considers itself above the law, and state media features lively debates such as whether pineapple on pizza is an acceptable topping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 190,979th in the world and 7,622nd in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.61 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
