The Republic of Card Farmer 184 is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, prohibition of alcohol, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 7.228 billion Card Farmer 184ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 184ian economy, worth 967 trillion cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 133,919 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, and it is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away". 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 184's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 184 is ranked 250,337th in the world and 1,996th in Birb for Most Beautiful Environments, with 125.27 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
