Location: Birb

Regional Influence: Sprat


The Republic of Card Farmer 789 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.23 billion Card Farmer 789ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 789ian economy, worth 505 trillion cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,514 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Men are finding 'she spots' more easily but they can't use them, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 789's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 789 is ranked 23,566th in the world and 240th in Birb for Smartest Citizens, with 56.7 quips per hour.
