The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Telissat Amris with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 41.524 billion Ctani enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. 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 an astonishing 12,053 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 290,285 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

It is typical to be greeted by a string of curse words in Ctanian restaurants, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across The Ctan, exports are stamped with "made by the invisible hand you commies", and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. 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 221,530th in the world and 2nd in The Mictlan System for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 23.58 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
