The Empire of Cartiga is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Gauthier with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.796 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartigan economy, worth a remarkable 1,404 trillion coins a year, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,698 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cartiga's national animal is the Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Cartiga is ranked 104th in Europeia and 22,223rd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.097 Stalins.
