The Clampdown of Kaputer is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joe Strummer with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.621 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 large, corrupt 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 2%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Tourism.

Neighbouring countries pay to situate their nuclear power plants in Kaputer, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and all citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society. 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 401st in Capitalist Paradise and 113,133rd in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring -102 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
