The Holy Empire of 1C is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its enforced nudity. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.933 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 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Information Technology and Basket Weaving.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, and the Hanging Gardens account for half of 1C City's water use. 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 5th in England and 3,846th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
