Estimator miscalculated where Dili is capital (4,5)


I believe the answer is:

east timor

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'dili is capital' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I cannot tell whether this works.

'estimator miscalculated' is the wordplay.
'estimator' can be anagrammed to 'EAST TIMOR'.
Though, I am unsure how this is indicated.

'where' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for east timor that I've seen before include "Part of the Malay archipelago - estimator (anag)" , "island nation" , "Ex-Portuguese colony annexed by Indonesia, independent since 2002" , "Southeast Asian country, independent since 2002, capital Dili" .)
