The Potential of A Cardboard Box is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by A boy and his tiger with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, flagrant waste-dumping, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.954 billion Transmogrifiers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals is dominated by the Department of Administration, with Public Transport, Spirituality, and International Aid also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tree Fort. Income tax is unheard of.

The strong Transmogrifying economy, worth 382 trillion imaginations a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 129,421 imaginations, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 919,143 per year while the poor average 6,052, a ratio of 151 to 1.

The comic book series 'A boy and his tiger and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, the end of autumn is celebrated with a bonfire of designer bags, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and the nation's biggest export is stupidity. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. A Cardboard Box's national animal is the Stuffed Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Toboggan Philosophy.

A Cardboard Box is ranked 10,616th in the world and 2nd in Mexico for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 47.02 Bank.
