The Empire of Kamakura Kid is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Kamakasi Kid with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.325 billion Kamakura Kidians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kamakasi. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kamakura Kidian economy, worth 771 trillion Yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 144,827 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, the nation has always been at war with Moltovea, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kamakura Kid's national animal is the Reindeer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Violetism.

Kamakura Kid is ranked 86,526th in the world and 12th in Doll Guldur for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,548.18 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
