The Fuerzas Armadas of Numero Capitan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.124 billion Capitans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuca. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Numero Capitanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,799 trillion gold dime bars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 99,273 gold dime bars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 293,866 per year while the poor average 26,341, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

Capitans have become death, the destroyer of worlds, where your food came from is an unknowable mystery, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, and rural Capitans stare in awe at the bright lights of the big cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Numero Capitan's national animal is the ghost of christmas past, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Numero Capitan is ranked 192,556th in the world and 12th in 00000 A World Power for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.73 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
