The State of Kaper Kaike is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ktenon Sheiaik with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.904 billion Kaper Kaikeans 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Koten Mako. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaper Kaikean economy, worth a remarkable 2,441 trillion Teshken Credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 413,615 Teshken Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,372,110 per year while the poor average 93,057, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

The police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, the country is preparing for war, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaper Kaike's national animal is the Epolenk Parron, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Aluen.

Kaper Kaike is ranked 37,678th in the world and 20th in Guer Aike Territories for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 5,568.89 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
