The Greater Imperium of Caprydania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by HIM Emperor Augustus Capridanicus IX with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.033 billion Caprydanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caprydanis. The average income tax rate is 32.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Caprydanian economy, worth 96.5 trillion Auroes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,403 Auroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, Holy Church Of Shrek has been named as Caprydania's national religion, and the roundel of the Caprydanian Air Force has become an internationally recognized symbol of destruction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caprydania's national animal is the Coywolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Holy Church Of Shrek.

Caprydania is ranked 200,873rd in the world and 674th in Europeia for Most Extreme, scoring 8.6 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
