The Cavern of The Metal Cap is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Pannenkoek2012 with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.626 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, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hazy Maze Cave. The average income tax rate is 13.7%.

The strong SM64 speedrunnerian economy, worth 107 trillion BLJS a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 66,231 BLJS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who use the word "Violet" incorrectly find their WhoTube content taken down, voting is voluntary, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 145,829th in the world and 119th in Lardyland for Most Inclusive, scoring 86.35 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
