OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Holy Empire of 1C is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.352 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, pro-business 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 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Basket Weaving and Soda Sales.

1C's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, the nation's drinking water tends to glow green at night, citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom. 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 2,447th in Lazarus and 93,178th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -61 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
