Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the people with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 30.612 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 8,513 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 278,097 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Farm turkeys are given high doses of antidepressants to take their minds off the holiday season, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. 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 82,370th in the world and 1st in The Mictlan System for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 763.71 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
