Cacotopia: it’s similar to DYStopia, but it sounds cooler. Or perhaps just more profane – like an STD transmitted only in the barracks while you’re deployed. Whether it’s EROL, WROL, or disaster-related, cacotopia sucks. Just ask Theo Faron, Hugo Toorop, and Harrison Bergeron.

(ˌkækəˈtəʊpɪə): an imaginary place where everything is as bad as it can be; a dystopia.
Some of us enjoy cacotopia in our films and novels. Some of us use “lessons learned” from such fiction to prepare for actual, “real life” living and survival challenges.

This makes them fascinating because we can realistically imagine what we would do in their position if the future goes this way…real people, dealing with real issues in an unreal (but possible) world. Some of these issues depicted include combating a tyrannical government or even just protecting your family in a future that has failed.” The Cinema Cult

Of course, our very first thought was that this was a sex toy, lightsaber, or combination thereof. In fact it's an environmentally sealed survival cache (pronounced like "cash", not "cash-shay"). While it might not be as fun as the Darth Vibrator, it still might come...
