The Holy Empire of 1C is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.49 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 is mainly concerned with Education, although Commerce and Social Equality are on the agenda. 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.

Vile black smog from coal power plants has enveloped several major urban centres, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, and "The Daily Sacrifice" is a routine segment of morning news shows. 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 45th in England and 73,609th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -37 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
