The Imperium of Cartiga is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by General Serpico with an iron fist, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.085 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Religion & Spirituality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The military is blowing up any threat to employment within the nation, only the wealthy vote, an enfeebled opposition party spends most of its time simply trying to stay on the ballot, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the coin.

Cartiga is ranked 690th in Europeia and 113,665th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -272 Dawkins.
