Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of 1C is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.611 billion 1Cians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.5%.

The frighteningly efficient 1Cian economy, worth a remarkable 2,598 trillion Paper Butterflies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 270,416 Paper Butterflies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Students abandon classrooms for online education, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, and the number of children one can have is restricted by law. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 1C's national animal is the Armadillo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

1C is ranked 161,149th in the world and 2,894th in the Rejected Realms for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 16.22 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
