The Holy Empire of 1C is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.986 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 concentrates mainly on 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.

The world outside is only known of in folklore, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, 1C's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores. 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 529th in Lazarus and 21,469th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 88 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
