The Free Land of Cardboard Lootbox is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.66 billion Cardsharks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Legendary. The average income tax rate is 28.1%.

The powerhouse Lootboxer economy, worth 165 trillion Cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 99,986 Cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, and citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Cardboard Lootbox's national animal is the Legendary Epic, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cardboard Lootbox is ranked 44,555th in the world and 79th in Spiritus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 181,439.69 Standard Monetary Units.
