The Pandimensional Hopscotch of Senkaku is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gonzo Khan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.104 billion Senkakans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astapor. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Senkakuan economy, worth a remarkable 2,761 trillion lire a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 195,769 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, and when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Senkaku's national animal is the cuttlefish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Senkaku is ranked 62,591st in the world and 9th in Kylaris for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 4.3 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
