The Clampdown of Kaputer is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joe Strummer with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 24.436 billion Kaputerians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kaputerian economy, worth a remarkable 7,283 trillion Show Me Da Monies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 298,063 Show Me Da Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's mettle is about to be tested, rural Kaputerians stare in awe at the bright lights of the big cities, recent events have left citizens both shaken and stirred, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kaputer's national animal is the Pug, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Shouldn't have answered that issue.

Kaputer is ranked 234,836th in the world and 311th in Capitalist Paradise for Least Corrupt Governments, with 35.61 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
