The Democratic Imperium of Capercom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Benz with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 10.604 billion Capertonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caperstown. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Capercomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,200 trillion US Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,170 US Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The blind lead the blind in social welfare, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Capercomian satellites can detect it, and grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Capercom's national animal is the Gorilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Capercom is ranked 12,874th in the world and 687th in Lazarus for Highest Poor Incomes, with 91,493.49 Standard Monetary Units.
