The Republic of Card Farmer 987 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.779 billion Card Farmer 987ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 51.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 987ian economy, worth 598 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, 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 125,259 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and people on the brink of death are put through unwanted and stressful procedures. 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 987's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 987 is ranked 18,653rd in the world and 288th in Birb for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 272.28 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
