The Republic of Card Farmer 1785 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.524 billion Card Farmer 1785ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 63.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 1785ian economy, worth 377 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 107,162 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, the nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million, the hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, and the nation is Birb's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 1785's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 1785 is ranked 39,731st in the world and 1,294th in Birb for Smartest Citizens, with 42.01 quips per hour.
