The Clampdown of Kaputer is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joe Strummer with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.978 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, 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.

Average income is an amazing 281,542 Springsteens, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,335,828 per year while the poor average 35,017, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Kaputer is ranked 29th in Capitalist Paradise and 2,386th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 698 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
