The Borderlands of Cardmania90078 is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 7.052 billion Cardmania90078ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cardmania90078ian economy, worth 850 trillion Bodies a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,595 Bodies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash", families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cardmania90078's national animal is the Human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cardmania90078 is ranked 16,746th in the world and 1st in abilities for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 99.74 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
