The Secondary Cards Conglomerate of SecoNd beSt card colleCtor is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.763 billion Second Best Card Collectors live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education and Administration are also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Second Best Card Collector economy, worth 419 trillion Cards a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 151,783 Cards, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,375,476 per year while the poor average 1,969, a ratio of 698 to 1.

Motorbike jousters live young and die fast, savvy nightclub-goers know that structurally unsound venues sell the cheapest drinks, distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water, and adult unemployment is rising as available jobs are filled by young children. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. SecoNd beSt card colleCtor's national animal is the Legendary, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

SecoNd beSt card colleCtor is ranked 156,444th in the world and 1st in Second Place for Largest Governments, scoring 9.95 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
