The Republic of Card Vault is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Valint and Balk with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, avowedly heterosexual populace, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.974 billion Collectors are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vault One. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Collecting economy, worth 458 trillion cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 154,127 cards, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 893,511 per year while the poor average 12,626, a ratio of 70.8 to 1.

Constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, the government merely pays lip service to Corporatism, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, and kids only know what plants are because they've seen them on the television. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Card Vault's national animal is the deck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Corporatism.

Card Vault is ranked 34,467th in the world and 1st in Card Corp for Most Extreme, scoring 31.84 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
