The Republic of Cakyoqu is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Nakayama with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.609 billion Cakyoquans 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, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honyosan. The average income tax rate is 12.8%.

The powerhouse Cakyoquan economy, worth 626 trillion Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,301 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people, Cakyoquan politicians are often described as having more style than substance, and constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cakyoqu's national animal is the Akita, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Xuzang.

Cakyoqu is ranked 73,037th in the world and 16th in One big Island for Highest Drug Use, scoring 81 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
