The Kakin Empire (カキン()(てい)(こく)()()()()()()(), Kakin Teikoku) is a country in the middle of the Azian Continent, and later also one of the countries of the V6.[1]

History

Kakin's location

In the age of rival warlords, Kakin was a small country that threatened to be absorbed by its neighboring countries. Around that time, the First King of Kakin conjured the Seed Urn inspired by the "worm toxin" and had his children fight in a succession contest for the throne, which is the foundation for Kakin becoming the superpower that it is today.[2]

Ancient Kakin had a tradition where princes who failed to become kings were buried together with a sacrifice to prevent them from becoming vengeful ghosts who would curse or haunt the king. Despite supposedly being a great honor, this "afterlife companion" was always selected from the lowest caste in the system. This custom has since been abolished.[3]

Taking advantage of the "Shinrinkan Incident", the country shifted from being a socialist empire to a parliamentary democracy thirty years ago in what was called "The Most Silent Revolution in History". As a result, the name of the country was changed and all treaties considered null by the new government. In recent years, it underwent considerable economic growth. It is currently ruled by Nasubi Hui Guo Rou.[4]

Plot

Chimera Ant arc

Gon, Killua, and Kite in Kakin

After using the Greed Island card "Accompany", Gon and Killua are transported out of Greed Island to this country where they meet Kite instead of what they believed to be Ging.[5] Kite is hired by the Government of Kakin and his team of six Amateur Hunters to carry out a biological survey that consists mainly of ecological research—discovery of new species (the quota on their current contract is seven new species). Other Amateur Hunters are studying changes in native species habitat and population fluctuation. The team has been in Kakin for three years, and they still have one month till their contract with Kakin runs out. Since their quota is already fulfilled, Kite recruits Gon and Killua in the team and decides to find seven more species.[6]

During the three years, they've spent in Kakin, Lin Koshi has discovered the most number of new species (1019), and Kite has discovered the least (68 new species). The Camp Tiger is regarded as their biggest discovery during the whole trip.[6]

One month later, Kite and the Amateur Hunters turn in their results from the biological survey to the Kakin government. The zoologist Wong is delighted by their work and claims these results are worth 200 years of their own research. He then says they can't pay them a bonus but promises to recommend their team to the ministries of other countries. While there, they are also told that Southernpiece Auction House has acquired a segment of a strange creature. They are unable to put it up for auction in fear of its legality but are offering to sell it to a professional Hunter.[7]

Dark Continent Expedition arc

Kakin's capital

Nasubi Hui Guo Rou announces that there will be an expedition to the Dark Continent and has Beyond Netero invite everyone to Kakin, which serves as the gathering point.[4] The Five Modern Nations initially invite the emperor to desist,[8] but after a summit, they resolve to endorse the project and invite Kakin into the group, becoming the V6, in order to share in the benefits, while the organization of the voyage is left to Kakin. The Black Whale No.1, a gigantic ship capable of carrying 200,000 people, is the means of transportation to the Dark Continent. The emperor declares he will have 20 more built in the span of a year, as well as to send 100,000,000 people to the Dark Continent in 5 years.[9] However, the voyage also serves a secret function: it is on the Black Whale that Nasubi's 14 children will compete for the throne by killing each other in a succession contest.[10]

Succession Contest arc

A tremendous event for the voyage to the Dark Continent was held in a large scale harbor on the voyage's eve departure. The event M.C.s were Gantai and Tamazo who introduces King Nasubi, the Royal Princes, and Beyond Netero. Once the event was over the King and princes all entered the ship on their private airships.[11] The following day the Black Whale set sail for the Dark Continent.[12]

Government

Royal Family

Kakin is a monarchical empire, ruled by King Nasubi Hui Guo Rou who has eight wives, with 14 legitimate children.

  1. Queen Unma gave him two sons, Benjamin and Tserriednich.
  2. Queen Duazul gave him two daughters, Camilla and Tubeppa, and two sons, Luzurus and Halkenburg.
  3. Queen Tang Zhao Li, gave him one son, Zhang Lei.
  4. Queen Katrono gave him one daughter, Tyson.
  5. Queen Swinko-swinko gave him one son, Salé-salé.
  6. Queen Seiko gave him two daughters, Kacho and Fugetsu.
  7. Queen Sevanti gave him one daughter, Momoze, and one son, Marayam.
  8. Queen Oito gave him one daughter, Woble.

Even though officially there is no official ranking among the wives, there still exist some rules and privileges among them. For example, lower-ranking wives cannot contact the higher ranking ones.

Since gender has no bearing for succession, all the children are referred to as "Prince" — as in the "Nth Prince" in order of birth. All 14 Princes are currently participating in a succession contest aboard the Black Whale during a voyage to the pretend New Continent where the sole survivor will be the official heir to the throne.[13]

Illegitimate children of a king take the name of "Second-Track Fakers"[14] (二線者, Nisenmono) and receive two scars on their face the moment they are born. They are allowed to live[15] and receive ample privileges in the underworld[14] on the condition that they forever remain in the shadows.[15]

Parliament

Kakin is a parliamentary democracy[4] and has an unknown ruling party.[16] The real power of these institutions is debatable, however, since King Nasubi seems to be the supreme leader of the country.

Military

Prince Benjamin is a Military Deputy Adviser. His personal militia are all soldiers in the Royal Army, making them qualify as Royal Guards to the other Princes.[17] Balsamilco Might, his Captain of the Guards, is a Master Sergeant.[18]

The Royal Army guarding the halls of the Black Whale

During Kakin's voyage to the pretend "New Continent", the Black Whale is under martial law. The Royal Army is acting as a neutral party to the Succession Battle and is assigned various tasks on board. The through-ways between the ship's tiers are guarded by the Royal Army. The military also manages all phone lines present in the ship, as well as monitoring the halls and keeping track of all activities.[11] The Royal Army was shown to handle the deceased bodies of bodyguards and princes alike by carrying them outside a prince's quarters.[12][19] They also restrain suspects and take them into custody to question them.[20][19]

Botobai and Mizaistom are assisting the military by taking command of private security.[11] Both negotiated to obtain the passenger list of the Black Whale No.1 by getting the V6 to contact Kakin on their behalf. Botobai believed they would be able to reach an agreement thanks to the strong channels Begerossé Union and United States of Saherta have with Kakin. Mizaistom was also responsible for performing background checks of candidates.[1] He is currently in the Royal Army conference room, while Botobai is located in the central courthouse of the Black Whale. Saccho plans to talk to Mizaistom and suggests a rotation so either him, Kanzai or Saiyu go support the Royal Army instead of "babysitting" Beyond.[11]

Princes' Employees

Queen Oito recruits Kurapika

The Hunter Association restricted each Kakin prince to fifteen employees on board the Black Whale during their two-month voyage to the pretend New Continent.[10]

The fifteen employees can range from personal guards (e.g. Maor), Royal Guards/spies from the higher Queens (e.g. Slakka), Royal Guards from the princes' mothers (e.g. Mushaho),[18] servants (e.g. Shimano),[11] to Pro Hunters recruited from outside (e.g. Kurapika)[21]

Moreover, Princes Camilla, Zhang Lei, Tserriednich, and Tubeppa pushed this limit to 20 by sending 5 of their personal guards to take the 289th Hunter Exam and pass as Provisional Hunters with limited licenses only for the voyage (e.g. Theta).[10]

Below is a list that specifies the characteristics of these categories:

  • Personal Guards: Soldiers each prince assembled through their own connections. Only the First Prince's guards also serve as royal army officers. The guards of the oldest five princes have been training since their childhood to give their lives to the prince. Morale and loyalty are high.[22]
  • Queen's Guards: Royal army soldiers allotted to each queen. Each prince's guard has little sense of connection to them, but they are loyal to their queens.[22] Some of them are willing to assassinate the prince they are assigned to,[23] whereas others abhor the notion and limit themselves to monitoring their prince, making sure he or she does not become a threat to the safety of their client or her children.[24]
  • Hunter Association Members: Professional Hunters hired as bodyguards by each individual prince. Exclusively defensive, they do not assist assassinations even by request from the client.[22]
  • Provisional Hunters: Each prince's guards and the Hunter Association coordinated to gather personnel to guard areas outside residential quarters. This personnel was given temporary Hunter Association member status as a matter of convenience. Rules have been ignored and they freely enter quarters.[22]
  • Servants: Some also serve as soldiers, and some are noncombatants. The more personnel a prince requests, the more furniture, necessities and luggage allowed to fit in their residence, and therefore the fewer weapons they can bring (those with weapons are supplied).[22]
