Regional Influence: Sprat


The Republic of Card Farmer 1210 is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its parental licensing program, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.637 billion Card Farmer 1210ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 1210ian economy, worth 645 trillion cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 139,194 cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fattest folk in Card Farmer 1210 look to be the happiest ones, young people avoid opening doors for the elderly with impunity, theatre audiences often need a telescope to see the stage, and an endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 1210's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 1210 is ranked 237,785th in the world and 3,258th in Birb for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.48 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
