Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Cartiga is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Gauthier with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, rampant corporate plagiarism, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 10.42 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.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Levenaux. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartigan economy, worth a remarkable 1,722 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. Average income is an impressive 165,349 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of Cartiga's historical leaders at Mount Rushless, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, the nation's peacekeeping efforts usually comes with a healthy dose of pillaging, and long-wed spouses often regret proposals they made when they were twenty. 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 Esoteric Catholicism.

Cartiga is ranked 50th in Europeia and 3,809th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 41 on the Enoch Index.
