The Secondary Cards Conglomerate of SecoNd beSt card colleCtor is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.315 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 dominated by the Department of Industry, with Education and Administration also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Second Best Card Collector economy, worth 192 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 146,268 Cards, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,325,120 per year while the poor average 1,903, a ratio of 696 to 1.

The "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, some say Leader has gone MAD after authorizing the development of apocalyptic biological weapons, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

SecoNd beSt card colleCtor is ranked 217,532nd in the world and 1st in Second Place for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 7.37 Tourists Per Hour.
