The Holy Empire of 1C is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.722 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Healthcare. 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.

Public nudity is compulsory, 1C City spends billions upgrading public transport, the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape 1C, and the government is funneling billions into Cape 1C following the shuttle crash. 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 109,387th in the world for Safest, scoring -134.4 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
