The Colony of Card Menagerie is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.431 billion Card Menagerieans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The thriving Card Menageriean economy, worth 181 trillion defenceless kiwi birds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is 74,706 defenceless kiwi birds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 264,438 per year while the poor average 15,238, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Card Menagerie's national animal is the leopard seal, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Card Menagerie is ranked 203,181st in the world and 2nd in Akihabara for Smartest Citizens, with 20.69 quips per hour.
