The Republic of Card Farmer 659 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its daily referendums, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.398 billion Card Farmer 659ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 659ian economy, worth 626 trillion cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,439 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Catherine Gratwick's campaign support is considered seminal, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, father-son fishing trips have been banned, and asking 'a penny for your thoughts?' draws law enforcement response. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 659's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 659 is ranked 65,027th in the world and 1,476th in Birb for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 205,370 Standard Monetary Units.
