The Cavern of The Metal Cap is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pannenkoek2012 with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.257 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 65.7 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 88,436th in the world and 62nd in Lardyland for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 69.04 Workforce Participation Rate.
