The Republic of Card Farmer 1283 is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its parental licensing program, smutty television, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.591 billion Card Farmer 1283ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 1283ian economy, worth 624 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 136,076 cards, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 451,413 per year while the poor average 30,615, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

The government regrets to say that it is forced to make cuts to citizens, middle-aged metal fans quite enjoy being called "rebellious youths" by even older politicians, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and the environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 1283's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 1283 is ranked 22,044th in the world and 580th in Birb for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 240.74 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
