The Democratic States of Dinner Blaster is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Harkinian with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.916 billion Dinner Blasterians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gamelon City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Dinner Blasterian economy, worth a remarkable 2,374 trillion Meme bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 199,231 Meme bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, the Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs, art criticism in Dinner Blaster is scathingly destructive, and employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dinner Blaster's national animal is the Criter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dinner Blaster is ranked 616th in the world and 22nd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 100.99 Effective Tax Rate.
