The ExaCivilization of The Ctan Species is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Integrated Core Data Nodes with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.9 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 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 4,961 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 416,957 Basic Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Ctan officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Peth Kethona Metacomplex" t-shirts. 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 240,046th in the world and 3rd in SICON for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -33.16 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
