The Republic of Cadenzana is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Silverstone with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.504 billion Cadenzians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cadenza. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cadenzian economy, worth 142 trillion Cadas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 94,722 Cadas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, refugees from other nations are flocking to Cadenzana's border, firebombing politicians' offices has become a common way of expressing dissatisfaction, and piracy is the nation's most popular pastime. Crime is totally unknown. Cadenzana's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cadenzana is ranked 3,013th in the world and 11th in Refugia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 8,195.79 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
