The Republic of Ca-P16 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Card Master with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.47 billion Ca-P16ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardfarmia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.2%.

The powerhouse Ca-P16ian economy, worth 482 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,949 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 320,971 per year while the poor average 28,464, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

The government's policy is 'all pain, no grain', loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, and the government operates on a policy of compliance through intimidation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ca-P16's national animal is the eagle and its national religion is Card Farming.

Ca-P16 is ranked 66,845th in the world and 44th in The Euhemeristic Order for Largest Populations, with 4.47 billion capita.
