The Voice of CaveDweller is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Cooki with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, disturbing lack of elderly people, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 6.828 billion Cooks are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cooki. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.

The frighteningly efficient CaveDwellerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,200 trillion Cookies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 175,805 Cookies, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,598,733 per year while the poor average 2,206, a ratio of 724 to 1.

It is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away", the nation is cleaning up after a national night of celebration left most people with headaches and dim memories (CaveDweller has found 8 easter eggs), anti-riot police are dispatched whenever two elderly ladies gather to complain that prices have increased, and Cooki is spearheading a new fashion trend of wearing swimming goggles and medieval armour. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. CaveDweller's national animal is the Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Maths.

CaveDweller is ranked 431st in the world and 8th in the Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 724.68 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
