The Kingdom of Taya Dust is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 382 million Taya Dustians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Taya Dustian economy, worth 17.2 trillion Tayas 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 45,013 Tayas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Builders across Taya Dust are blocked up with orders for new public loos, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and television characters who ask how someone's doing are charged with harassment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taya Dust's national animal is the Flying Squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Taya Dust is ranked 45,664th in the world and 1,697th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
