The Nomadic Peoples of Cardmania90015 is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.646 billion Cardmania90015ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cardmania90015ian economy, worth 640 trillion 422s 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Retail, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 137,939 422s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 413,818 per year while the poor average 35,914, a ratio of 11.5 to 1.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion, and convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cardmania90015's national animal is the 42, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cardmania90015 is ranked 31,202nd in the world and 2nd in Majorkills Wasteland for Highest Economic Output, with 640 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
