Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Cartiga is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Gauthier with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, devout population of 13.076 billion Cartigans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Levenaux. The average income tax rate is 33.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartigan economy, worth a remarkable 1,936 trillion brouzoufs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,069 brouzoufs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Cartigans, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cartiga's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Esoteric Catholicism.

Cartiga is ranked 5,063rd in the world and 78th in Europeia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.23 Years.
