The Imperium of Cartiga is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Serpico with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.845 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 secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 86%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", the education system is famed for its taxing exams, hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight, and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. 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 149th in Europeia and 23,358th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1 Stalins.
