Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the people with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 29.041 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 7,885 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 271,520 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Raven hunting institutions, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Tephet-Sheta Times is sold out. 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 189,214th in the world and 1st in The Mictlan System for Best Weather, with -627 Meters Of Sunlight.
