The United Provinces of Cappedore is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Consul Martha Townsend with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 9.712 billion Cappedorites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duropolis. The average income tax rate is 85.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cappedorite economy, worth 885 trillion Cappedorite Staters a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,148 Cappedorite Staters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People unhook their phones at night to escape a never-ending barrage of phone calls, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, the official Cappedorite Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cappedore's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Druidism.

Cappedore is ranked 248,292nd in the world and 11,818th in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.93 crimes per hour.
