The Clampdown of Kaputer is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Joe Strummer with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.558 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 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 4%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Tourism.

Convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime is well under control, 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.

Kaputer is ranked 47th in Capitalist Paradise and 3,391st in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 125 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
