Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the people with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 26.825 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 7,181 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 267,728 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, and citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns. 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 136,540th in the world for Safest, scoring -110.162 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
