The Democratic States of Dinner Blaster is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Harkinian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, ban on automobiles, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.789 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 1,948 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 199,058 Meme bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. 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 150,316th in the world and 5,280th in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1261.63 on the Hayek Index.
