Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Cartiga is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Gauthier with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 9.177 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, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Levenaux. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartigan economy, worth a remarkable 1,446 trillion coins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,605 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The internet has been placed under government control, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, Levenaux is a police state during international summits, and Cartiga's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians. 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 Theosophy.

Cartiga is ranked 1,051st in Europeia and 141,782nd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -5 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
