Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Cartiga is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Gauthier with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 12.222 billion Cartigans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Levenaux. The average income tax rate is 23.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cartigan economy, worth a remarkable 1,759 trillion brouzoufs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 143,949 brouzoufs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Distant and obscure male relatives succeed to the Cartigan throne, the nation is in perpetual campaign mode, families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, and the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cartiga's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Esoteric Catholicism.

Cartiga is ranked 161,722nd in the world and 1,531st in Europeia for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 62.81 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
