The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 52.5%.

The all-consuming All Cards are Worthlessian economy, worth 206 trillion Banks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 94,897 Banks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, TV coverage of music festivals consists mostly of backstage interviews, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, and the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. All Cards are Worthless's national animal is the Rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
