The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the people with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 26.289 billion Ctani have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Education is also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tephet-Sheta. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ctanian economy, worth a remarkable 6,952 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 264,464 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, the country is preparing for war, lending firms are subject to strict government regulations, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Ctan's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Ctan is ranked 1st in The Mictlan System and 1,176th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 387 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
