The Corrugated Shantytown of Cardboard Lootbox XVI is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Loot Boxcard with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.53 billion Cardsharks have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hooverville. The average income tax rate is 15.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Lootboxing economy, worth 272 trillion Cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 107,645 Cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Cardboard Lootbox XVI'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 XVI is ranked 176,864th in the world and 34th in Last Flight for Most Authoritarian, with 348.54 milliStalins.
