OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Republic of Card Farmer 3309 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.783 billion Card Farmer 3309ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 30.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Card Farmer 3309ian economy, worth 172 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. 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 45,544 cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gay hospital patients are labelled with a pink triangle to alert staff of their substandard blood, law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 3309's national animal is the farming, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Card Farmer 3309 is ranked 75,473rd in the world and 1,023rd in Birb for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 3,352.94 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
