The Republic of Card Farmer 949 is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.139 billion Card Farmer 949ians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 949ian economy, worth 673 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,012 cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants, the government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, and greenhouses are regularly raided by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 949's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 949 is ranked 17,338th in the world and 1,361st in Birb for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 6,002.76 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
