The Collectivist Oligarchy of Cacnesia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Citizen Zero with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.351 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, outspoken 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 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cacnesian economy, worth 386 trillion Ingsoc Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 164,275 Ingsoc Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one is quite sure what many government officials look like, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, many friends and relatives of Citizen Zero have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cacnesia's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cacnesia is ranked 3,647th in the world and 119th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 131.26 Bank.
