The Republic of Card Farmer 1480 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.595 billion Card Farmer 1480ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 42.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 1480ian economy, worth 137 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,330 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, recognised healthcare professionals treat diabetes with a grain of sugar in a barrel of water, and private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots. 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 1480's national animal is the farming, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Card Farmer 1480 is ranked 35,173rd in the world and 313th in Birb for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 802.9 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
