The United Socialist States of Caracasus is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Council Elect with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.046 billion Caracasusians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jevellit Metropolitan District. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Caracasusian economy, worth a remarkable 4,044 trillion Tiny elephant figurines a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 309,982 Tiny elephant figurines, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban parents tell their children that the family car went to a farm upstate, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post. Crime is totally unknown. Caracasus's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Caracasus is ranked 2,979th in the world and 9th in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Economic Output, with 4,044 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
