The Republic of Card Farmer 1422 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.574 billion Card Farmer 1422ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 1422ian economy, worth 639 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 139,900 cards, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 678,214 per year while the poor average 16,704, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

Pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, the newest East Lebatuckese coins have "long live East Lebatuck" on heads and "death to Card Farmer 1422" on tails, quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces, and the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 1422's national animal is the farming, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Card Farmer 1422 is ranked 22,061st in the world and 582nd in Birb for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 240.45 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
