The Collectivist Oligarchy of Cacnesia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Citizen Zero with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.802 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 Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cacnesian economy, worth 510 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 Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 182,044 Ingsoc Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, the government has been criticized for giving away Cacnesia's territory to anyone who claims it, and psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Citizen Zero to meetings with foreign heads of state. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cacnesia's national animal is the Blasphemous Whiskey Pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cacnesia is ranked 54,804th in the world and 1,767th in The East Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,307.95 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
