The County of Cappedore is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Tony Blair with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.488 billion Cappedorites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wessex. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cappedorite economy, worth 682 trillion Cappedorite Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 91,131 Cappedorite Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the world still seems flat to some people in space, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, and endangered species are effective hostages against the Cappedorite military. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cappedore's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Methodism.

Cappedore is ranked 49,293rd in the world and 14th in Union of Allied States for Fattest Citizens, with 12.88 Obesity Rate.
