The Republic of Card slave 8 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 2.168 billion Card slave 8ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 62.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Card slave 8ian economy, worth 104 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Information Technology. 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 47,981 Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's not just poseurs who wear oversized sound-cancelling headphones as they walk the city streets, the government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, and concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card slave 8's national animal is the Yugio, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Card slave 8 is ranked 15,904th in the world and 1,128th in Balder for Most Devout, with 1,464.76 Prayers Per Hour.
