The Collectivist Oligarchy of Cacnesia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Citizen Zero with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.406 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 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cacnesian economy, worth 402 trillion Ingsoc Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 167,217 Ingsoc Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and Citizen Zero is considering changing the Cacnesian flag to one with more glitter. 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 26,195th in the world and 442nd in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 80.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
