The Kingdom of Taya Dust is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 574 million Taya Dustians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Taya Dustian economy, worth 25.0 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 Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 43,544 Tayas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Taya Dust as a reminder of their "special relationship", homophobia is off the menu, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, and people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size. 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 79,218th in the world and 2,432nd in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 53.21 on the Human Development Index.
