The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the people with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 32.771 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, with Education also on the agenda, 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 9,208 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 280,994 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are abandoning their homes en masse in a widespread panic over asbestos, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, parents are legally not allowed to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Ctan's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Ctan is ranked 69,980th in the world and 1st in The Mictlan System for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.67 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
