The Cavern of The Metal Cap is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Pannenkoek2012 with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.289 billion SM64 speedrunners 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hazy Maze Cave. The average income tax rate is 9.7%.

The SM64 speedrunnerian economy, worth 67.4 trillion BLJS a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 52,291 BLJS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, there'll be no comeback tour for many former boy bands, and glassy-eyed SM64 speedrunnerian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command. Crime is relatively low. The Metal Cap's national animal is the Parallel Universe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is 0x A Press Run.

The Metal Cap is ranked 117,458th in the world and 86th in Lardyland for Highest Drug Use, scoring 46.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
