The Clampdown of Kaputer is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Joe Strummer with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 17.645 billion Kaputerians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

Kaputer is ranked 13,834th in the world and 33rd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 78.62 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
