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 notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ban on automobiles, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 11.474 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Levenaux. The average income tax rate is 10.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartigan economy, worth a remarkable 1,580 trillion brouzoufs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,735 brouzoufs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, the nation's new religious police burn blasphemers on bonfires of their own books, and murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 17,087th in the world and 93rd in Europeia for Most Authoritarian, with 1.86 Stalins.
