The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by its people with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.604 billion 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 government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass -- 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 9%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Book Publishing and Information Technology.

The Ctan has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news. 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 widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Credit.

The Ctan is ranked 1st in The Mictlan System and 36,936th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 80 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
