The Republic of Card Farmer 713 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.768 billion Card Farmer 713ians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 713ian economy, worth 636 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,392 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Motorbike jousters live young and die fast, dessert dishes make up the Card Farmer 713ian breakfast menu, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, and the deaf are perplexed when the weather report tells them that the wind will be "bringing some rain along the Nazi ghosts". 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 713's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 713 is ranked 23,115th in the world and 220th in Birb for Smartest Citizens, with 57.27 quips per hour.
