The Imperium of Cartiga is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Serpico with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.789 billion, 1.786 billion of whom are zombies, 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 secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. 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.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, school uniforms are compulsory, and government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest. 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 21st in Europeia and 3,064th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 16 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Cartiga is currently considering its options.
