The Corrugated Shantytown of Cardboard Lootbox is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Loot Boxcard with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.085 billion Cardsharks are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hooverville. The average income tax rate is 66.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lootboxing economy, worth a remarkable 1,794 trillion Cards 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 rampant. Average income is an amazing 253,334 Cards, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

The television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, legislators toe the party line lest the Sergeant-at-Arms decide to conduct "truncheon practice" on the backbench, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and the country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history. Crime is totally unknown. Cardboard Lootbox's national animal is the Legendary Epic, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Card Hunting.

Cardboard Lootbox is ranked 7,622nd in the world and 16th in Spiritus for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 26,406.59 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
