The United Aristocracy of Caplanbourgh is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Archelion Haustbatten with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.414 billion Caplanbourghians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charlington. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Caplanbourghian economy, worth 495 trillion Pounds Thernons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,056 Pounds Thernons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, soldiers are "encouraged" to advance by armed officers behind them, prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, and some of the country's most famous photographers are animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caplanbourgh's national animal is the Gypsy Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reformed Christianity.

Caplanbourgh is ranked 20,673rd in the world and 3rd in Of Books and Stories for Most Secular, with 55.43 Atheism Rate.
