The Great Crackerish Republic of Kakastania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by High Priest Kendall III with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.502 billion Crackers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krackee. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Crackerish economy, worth 929 trillion Slaves a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 168,948 Slaves, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,467,873 per year while the poor average 3,081, a ratio of 476 to 1.

Citizens must have a license to operate a computer, the nation takes the world's poor and tired and the huddled Masses yearning to breathe free, sales of superhero insurance have skyrocketed after the government abandoned the police in favor of vigilantes, and guns don't kill people — heroes do. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kakastania's national animal is the Crackerish Heron, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Crackerism.

Kakastania is ranked 33,039th in the world and 4th in Reqau and Salasia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,757.26 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
