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 remarkable for its frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 9.739 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, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartigan economy, worth a remarkable 1,624 trillion coins a year, is 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 166,753 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crop circles are intently studied by investigators with questionable merits, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', a nation-wide cull of Griffins is in effect, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. 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 37th in Europeia and 4,371st in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 37 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
