Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Cartiga is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Gauthier with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 8.983 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.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Levenaux. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartigan economy, worth a remarkable 1,422 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 158,369 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, heavy industry grinds to a halt as new equipment must be biked in, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. 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 868th in Europeia and 119,630th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -262 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
