My conculture will never get "perfect and complete" for the very good reason that I haven't inifinite free time on my hands. Developping an entire galactic civilization is quite a task I can tell you! And so, to a lesser but still unsurmountable degree, is creating a "full" fantasy or alt-history world. It's really only the people doing so little forgotten imaginary corner of the primary world that's even got a chance to get close to C5 if defined as "perfect and complete".
