Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the people with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 30.328 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 are ignored. 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 8,439 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 278,276 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Robosexual marriages are increasingly common, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere. 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 18,517th in the world and 1st in The Mictlan System for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
