Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the people with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, national health service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.895 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 8,242 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 275,699 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, Tephet-Sheta's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. 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 3,271st in the world and 1st in The Mictlan System for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 8,498.36 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
