The Holy Empire of 1C is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.897 billion 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Information Technology and Basket Weaving.

Prime picnicking sites are being paved over in the name of progress, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Paper Butterflys of property damage, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. 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 49th in England and 108,777th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -9 Whatever.
