“Pop Tarts for all”
Regional Influence: Negotiator
Location: Capitalist Paradise
The Clampdown of Kaputer is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joe Strummer with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.918 billion Kaputerians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The enormous, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Tourism.
Reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, and young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness'. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Kaputer's national animal is the Pug, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Shouldn't have answered that issue, and its currency is the Springsteen.
