The Clampdown of Kaputer is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Joe Strummer with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.793 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.

It is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Kaputer to be bombproof. Crime is totally unknown, 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 20th in Capitalist Paradise and 932nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 407 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
