The Community of Cactii is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 23.803 billion Cactiians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Industry, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 9.3%.

The powerhouse Cactiian economy, worth a remarkable 1,306 trillion sands a year, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 54,892 sands, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The only places to see dragons now are at local zoos, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied dragon, and buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cactii's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cactii is ranked 173,441st in the world and 7th in desert for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,073.04 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
