The Clampdown of Kaputer is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joe Strummer with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 12.667 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, liberal government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kaputerian economy, worth a remarkable 3,573 trillion Springsteens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 282,104 Springsteens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,048,486 per year while the poor average 53,333, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, much of Kaputer's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime is totally unknown. Kaputer's national animal is the Pug, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Shouldn't have answered that issue.

Kaputer is ranked 372nd in Capitalist Paradise and 125,787th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -2,139 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
