Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the people with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, public floggings, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.2 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 receive no funds. 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 7,349 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 270,212 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, package deals offer tourists the chance to visit the frozen remains of the previous tour group, and concussed Ravenball players cannot remember their lineup position. 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 24,988th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 23 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
