|The Kingdom of Tai Pei|
Sorry for the double post, but I am quite surprised no one has brought up the question of what Tai Pei represents, of which it does 2 things.
First, it's supposed to be a quite blunt message that "revenge is not an end, for it can only lead to exponential evil". When a country, person, or anything else has an obsession with revenge, it ends up leading to a burning desire to have something to contrast itself with, which always exposes humanity's dark side.
The other message Tai Pei is supposed to send is that hope can never truly perish. As humans, one of our natural needs is individual autonomy. Once humans are provided with an ability to simply keep themselves alive, they are alone with their thoughts, and humans alone with their thoughts is a despot's greatest fear and nightmare.
