The Republic of Takumai is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 285 million Takumaians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.1%.

The strong Takumaian economy, worth 17.2 trillion Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 60,238 Yen, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Leader has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Takumai's national animal is the Tech Deck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Takumai is ranked 51,231st in the world and 2,083rd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,322.45 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
