The Rogue Nation of Kazuka is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Xagon with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.755 billion Kazukans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kakuza. The average income tax rate is 34.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kazukan economy, worth 713 trillion Yen a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 150,065 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Xagon's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kazuka's national animal is the Kitsune, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kitsunism.

Kazuka is ranked 170,261st in the world and 6,327th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.08 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
