Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the people with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 26.636 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 7,115 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 267,144 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, police officers have been re-kitted with designer uniforms and gold plated handcuffs, teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing", and billions of Credits are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Ctan's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Ctan is ranked 1st in The Mictlan System and 795th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 17 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
