The Democratic Imperium of Capercom is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Benz with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The humorless population of 7.671 billion Capertonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caperstown. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Capercomian economy, worth 843 trillion US Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,940 US Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, throwing a sickie is a serious crime, and most people learn to drive on crash courses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Capercom's national animal is the Gorilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
