The Protectorate of Cardmania9002 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.483 billion Cardmania9002ians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cardmania9002ian economy, worth 674 trillion Monies a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,525 Monies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 492,830 per year while the poor average 34,531, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

Public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, the nation's reputation for treachery has left it sidelined on the international stage, citizens who leave the nation for work are instantly charged with treason, and citizens may cast their vote by mail or phone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cardmania9002's national animal is the Zebra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cardmania9002 is ranked 29,096th in the world and 159th in Birb for Highest Economic Output, with 674 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
