The Free Land of Caduceo is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and enslaved workforce. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 50 million Caduceoans 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 Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.4%.

The strong Caduceoan economy, worth 2.28 trillion Cadcoins a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 45,680 Cadcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 155,227 per year while the poor average 9,914, a ratio of 15.7 to 1.

Major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, and Caduceoan actors literally work from cradle to grave. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caduceo's national animal is the Healing Narwhal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Caduceo is ranked 65,609th in the world and 46th in Driselbia for Most Cultured, scoring 68 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
