The Imperium of Cartiga is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by General Serpico with an iron fist, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.025 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 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

An enormous health awareness programme is underway, a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun. 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 9th in Europeia and 1,269th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 486 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
