The Republic of Din is a massive, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.172 billion Dinians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Dinian economy, worth 49.1 trillion Golden Forks 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 Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 41,887 Golden Forks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, organ donation is compulsory, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Din's national animal is the faerie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Din is ranked 33,597th in the world and 2nd in Hyrule for Most Extreme, scoring 36.99 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
