The Colony of Caciocavallo is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The quiet, industrious population of 11.025 billion Caciocavalloans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 19.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Caciocavalloan economy, worth 678 trillion Scamorzas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,522 Scamorzas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, Harry Potter books are banned, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caciocavallo's national animal is the Podolica Cow, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Caciocavallo is ranked 34,204th in the world and 932nd in Osiris for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,531.14 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
