The United States of CardFarmer01487375 is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its closed borders, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.896 billion Card Farmers are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CardFarmopolis. The average income tax rate is 61.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer economy, worth a remarkable 1,803 trillion deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 228,394 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the traditional Violetist dish of stuffed sheep's head is served with an intense look of shock upon its face, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, and television executives are interested in turning Leader's zany home life into a sitcom. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CardFarmer01487375's national animal is the kangaroo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

CardFarmer01487375 is ranked 258,778th in the world and 5th in CardoTerraFormation for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -93.92 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
