Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the people with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 28.563 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 receive no funds. 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 7,717 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 270,199 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Ctanian lands, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Ctan's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Ctan is ranked 2nd in The Mictlan System and 107,568th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 12 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
