The Voice of CaveDweller is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Cooki with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, flagrant waste-dumping, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 6.696 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 Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cooki. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient CaveDwellerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,165 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 174,101 Cookies, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,579,370 per year while the poor average 2,236, a ratio of 706 to 1.

The new biography of Cooki is subtitled "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate the Bomb", a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, and lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies. 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 224,695th in the world and 5,516th in the Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 42.01 Whatever.
