Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the people with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.522 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, with Education also on the agenda, 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 8,187 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 277,342 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, the National Archive now covers square miles of warehouses in order to accommodate its new stone tablets system, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Ctan's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Ctan is ranked 164,217th in the world and 1st in The Mictlan System for Lowest Crime Rates, with 6.73 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
