The Unholy Cell Walls of Cytokinetic Amoebas is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Mitochondria with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.724 billion Cytokinetic Amoebasians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuclei. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cytokinetic Amoebasian economy, worth a remarkable 2,478 trillion organelles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,614 organelles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 404,834 per year while the poor average 26,118, a ratio of 15.5 to 1.

Political detractors refer to Mitochondria as 'that Bigtopian puppet', well-off serial killers write monthly checks to avoid jail time, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, and infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cytokinetic Amoebas's national animal is the plankton, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Multiplication.

Cytokinetic Amoebas is ranked 69,008th in the world and 3rd in Q102 for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,520.18 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
