The Holy Empire of 1C is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.894 billion 1Cians 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.

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 secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Information Technology and Basket Weaving.

Meat-eating is frowned upon, 1C's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, abortions are routinely performed in 1C's hospitals, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 3rd in England and 1,929th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 176 Dawkins.
