The Republic of Card Farmer 856 is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, aversion to nipples, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.975 billion Card Farmer 856ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 856ian economy, worth 640 trillion cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 128,674 cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes, and racehorses move a lot slower these days. 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 856's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 856 is ranked 125,010th in the world and 2,013th in Birb for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,270.6 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
