The Holy Empire of 1C is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.684 billion 1Cians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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.

The number of children one can have is restricted by law, citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys, suburban families are finding themselves increasingly short on food as they waste precious water on their lawns, and the government is giving peace a chance. 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 1st in England and 2,022nd in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 100 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
