The Republic of Card puppet 1 is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.394 billion Card puppet 1ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Administration, although Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 28.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Card puppet 1ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,095 trillion currencies a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,600 currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Orange trees find it's not easy being green, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, Harry Potter books are banned, and holiday gift-giving is often peppered with songs of praise to morally-questionable televangelists. Crime is pervasive. Card puppet 1's national animal is the animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card puppet 1 is ranked 262,278th in the world and 6,544th in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -190.92 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
