SecoNd beSt card colleCtor

Population1.36 billion


The Secondary Cards Conglomerate of SecoNd beSt card colleCtor is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.36 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 are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Second Best Card Collector economy, worth 198 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 145,717 Cards, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,320,121 per year while the poor average 1,895, a ratio of 696 to 1.

The nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes, they say that Second Best Card Collectors made a dessert and called it peace, a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, and former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage. 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 225,827th in the world and 1st in Second Place for Highest Poor Incomes, with 1,895.83 Standard Monetary Units.
