The Blessed Empire of Recapitah is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Imperial Orator with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.207 billion Recapitahians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brutan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.0%.

The powerhouse Recapitahian economy, worth a remarkable 2,174 trillion Petramons a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 178,114 Petramons, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,636,584 per year while the poor average 2,011, a ratio of 813 to 1.

The line between man and woman is drawn with surgical precision, glassy-eyed Recapitahian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, and Recapitah is suspiciously populated compared to its neighbors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Recapitah's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violetism.

Recapitah is ranked 81,320th in the world and 1,007th in the West Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,864.35 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
