The Democratic Republic of Daytanistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 32.314 billion Daytans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yerbel. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The thriving Daytanistanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,082 trillion zoats 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 mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 126,347 zoats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, cities are engulfed by smog, mysterious black helicopters menace farmers to ensure compliance with straitjacketing agricultural policies, and drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Daytanistan's national animal is the goat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Daytanistan is ranked 280,360th in the world and 27th in Western Atlantic for Most Avoided, scoring 0.88 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
