The Grand Duchy of Cardmania90019 is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.351 billion Cardmania90019ians 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 government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Public Transport is ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cardmania90019ian economy, worth 930 trillion 422s a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,566 422s, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

A baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cardmania90019's national animal is the 42, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cardmania90019 is ranked 183,654th in the world and 3rd in Confederacy of Progressive Nations for Most Influential, scoring 35 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
