The Holy Empire of 1C is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.193 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 Basket Weaving and Information Technology.

Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. 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 205th in Lazarus and 3,410th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 11 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
