The ExaCivilization of The Ctan Species is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Integrated Core Data Nodes with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.131 billion Ctan love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Peth Kethona Metacomplex. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ctan economy, worth a remarkable 5,094 trillion Basic Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 419,928 Basic Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The lactose-intolerant are force-fed cheese products with predictably gassy results, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into The Ctan Species, and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ctan Species's national animal is the multi-spectrum Control Virus TN4, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is universal atheism.

The Ctan Species is ranked 177,365th in the world and 1st in SICON for Most Conservative, scoring 34.92 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
