The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by its people with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.133 billion Ctani enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The enormous government devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tephet-Sheta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Book Publishing and Information Technology.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, Tephet-Sheta is a police state during international summits, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ctan's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its currency is the Credit.

The Ctan is ranked 2nd in The Mictlan System and 111,078th in the world for Best Weather, with -887 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
