The Empire of Cartiga is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Emperor Gauthier with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.564 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 is mainly concerned with 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 Levenaux. 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.

Otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and priests are being drafted by the church load. 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 770th in Europeia and 111,730th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -5 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
