The Imperium of Cartiga is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by General Serpico with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.443 billion Cartigans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

School uniforms are compulsory, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population. 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 223rd in Europeia and 28,050th in the world for Nudest, with 184 Cheeks per Square Mile.
