The Great Civilization of The Ctan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Telissat Amris with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 39.633 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education also on the agenda, 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 an astonishing 11,482 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 289,728 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, and antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were. 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 2,353rd in the world and 1st in The Mictlan System for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 8,110.31 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
