The Commonwealth of Cacocu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Derek Rump with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.339 billion Cacocuans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otisburg. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cacocuan economy, worth a remarkable 2,680 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 259,296 Dollarydoos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Cacocu, and couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material'. Crime is totally unknown. Cacocu's national animal is the Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cacocu is ranked 183,189th in the world and 7,097th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
