Cardboard Lootbox XVII

The Republic of Cardboard Lootbox XVII is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 219 million Looters 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.9%.

The thriving Lootboxing economy, worth 17.4 trillion Cards a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 79,668 Cards, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 279,465 per year while the poor average 16,477, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

It is customary to begin the summer with a fasting ritual in which people eat nothing but kumquat smoothies, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Card treacle machine, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Cardboard Lootbox XVII's national animal is the Legendary Epic, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cardboard Lootbox XVII is ranked 11,776th in the world and 59th in Last Flight for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 6 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
