The Commonwealth of Cacocu is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Derek Rump with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.172 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 74.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Cacocuan economy, worth a remarkable 2,643 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 259,843 Dollarydoos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, and international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Cacocu. Crime is totally unknown. Cacocu's national animal is the Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cacocu is ranked 1,816th in the world and 56th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.76 on the Human Development Index.
