The Collectivist Oligarchy of Cacnesia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ingsoc Central Committee Politburo with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.065 billion Cacnesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Cacnesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,287 trillion Ingsoc Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 254,158 Ingsoc Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A new "thought police" branch is being developed, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cacnesia's national animal is the LumpenTroll, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cacnesia is ranked 1,690th in the world and 48th in The East Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 192.93 quips per hour.
