Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Cartiga is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Gauthier with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 10.97 billion Cartigans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Levenaux. The average income tax rate is 3.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartigan economy, worth a remarkable 1,555 trillion brouzoufs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,823 brouzoufs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and auditors are gutting every governmental department. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Cartiga's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Esoteric Catholicism.

Cartiga is ranked 743rd in the world and 6th in Europeia for Best Weather, with 500 Meters Of Sunlight.
