The Dead Thing In The Water of Senkaku is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Gonzo Khan with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 19.016 billion Senkakans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Senkakuan economy, worth a remarkable 3,868 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 203,422 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", the government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', parents are always up to speed on the latest childcare techniques, and no one born in Senkaku can fix a leaky faucet. 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 3,200th in the world and 5th in Kylaris for Highest Economic Output, with 3,868 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
