The Imperium of Cartiga is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by General Serpico with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.686 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 88%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, and otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS. 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 623rd in Europeia and 94,212th in the world for Best Weather, with -27 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
