Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Cartiga is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Gauthier with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 9.511 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry 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 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartigan economy, worth a remarkable 1,545 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 162,532 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, homosexuality is a crime punishable by death, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Theosophy.

Cartiga is ranked 955th in Europeia and 139,870th in the world for Fattest Citizens, scoring -353.34 on the Transpolysaturated Intake Scale.
