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 notable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.195 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 8,074 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 276,566 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The police have been reduced to using duct tape instead of handcuffs following further cutbacks, people unhook their phones at night to escape a never-ending barrage of phone calls, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and the National Archive now covers square miles of warehouses in order to accommodate its new stone tablets system. 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 174,297th in the world and 1st in The Mictlan System for Lowest Crime Rates, with 6.73 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
