The Vault of Card Storage is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Hunter Cardshark with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.677 billion Storemen live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athenaeum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Storage economy, worth 253 trillion Decks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 151,026 Decks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 466,323 per year while the poor average 37,735, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

Grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, Hunter Cardshark's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, and prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Card Storage's national animal is the Legendary Epic, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Card Storage.

Card Storage is ranked 10,934th in the world and 23rd in Greater Dienstad for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,304.12 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
