The Collectivist Oligarchy of Cacnesia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Citizen Zero with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.019 billion Cacnesians 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 Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cacnesian economy, worth 577 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 fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 191,440 Ingsoc Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. 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 Worker Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cacnesia is ranked 150,077th in the world and 4,782nd in The East Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 44.25 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
