The Republic of Card Puppet 3 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its public floggings, feral children, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.726 billion Card Puppet 3ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Administration, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Puppet 3ian economy, worth 647 trillion bells 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. 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 173,898 bells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country has essentially become 3.726 billion nations within a nation, calling out of the blue has become taboo, one-word headlines are the norm in Card Puppet 3ian newspapers, and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. Crime is all-pervasive, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Card Puppet 3's national animal is the racoon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Puppet 3 is ranked 276,713th in the world and 1,439th in 10000 Islands for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -20.84 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
