The Legendary Republic of Cakatoa is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by James Drake with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 29.079 billion Cakatoans 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 enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Environment, although Education, Social Policy, and Welfare are also considered important, while Industry and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragonopolis. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Cakatoan economy, worth 766 trillion orbs a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 26,346 orbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, anti-government web sites are springing up, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cakatoa's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cakatoa is ranked 138,069th in the world and 8th in Lemuria for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 312.94 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
