The Republic of Card Farmer 444 is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its parental licensing program, ritual sacrifices, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.97 billion Card Farmer 444ians 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 Industry, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 444ian economy, worth 972 trillion cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,468 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, and viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 444's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 444 is ranked 251,952nd in the world and 2,072nd in Birb for Most Beautiful Environments, with 106.64 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
