The Imperium of Cartiga is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by General Serpico with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.923 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 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 Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 87%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The government is reining in public spending, the government is phasing in welfare programmes to tackle poverty, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. 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 80th in Europeia and 10,758th in the world for Safest, scoring 317.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
