The Republic of Card Farmer 460 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its parental licensing program, complete lack of prisons, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.098 billion Card Farmer 460ians 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 Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 460ian economy, worth 277 trillion cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 132,477 cards, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.
The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-cards mansions, no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines, and the hills are alive with the sound of ringtones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 460's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
