The Borderlands of Card Demon 159 is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 253 million Card Demon 159ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.5%.

The Card Demon 159ian economy, worth 12.8 trillion Souls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,767 Souls, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, the Card Demon 159 City Women's Prison Choir now has a baritone section, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Demon 159's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Card Demon 159 is ranked 166,035th in the world and 168th in The Underworld of Hell for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 436.59 tourists per hour.
