The Holy Empire of 1C is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.04 billion 1Cians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Commerce and Healthcare are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Information Technology and Basket Weaving.

Elected officials often serve for decades in a single term, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, euthanasia is illegal, and manufacturers are sued for almost anything not covered in their catalogue-sized manuals. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. 1C's national animal is the Armadillo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Paper Butterfly.

1C is ranked 78th in Lazarus and 1,821st in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 188 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
