Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Cartiga is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Gauthier with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, triple-decker prams, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 12.52 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, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Levenaux. The average income tax rate is 24.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartigan economy, worth a remarkable 1,820 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 145,431 brouzoufs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, large sections of Cartiga have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, and truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills. 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 71,047th in the world and 800th in Europeia for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 3,662.17 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
