The Free Land of CardFarmer09123235 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.768 billion Card Farmers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Administration, although Environment, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Card Farm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.3%.

The all-consuming Card Farmer economy, worth 481 trillion rupees a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 127,687 rupees, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 412,007 per year while the poor average 29,927, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, and children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. CardFarmer09123235's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

CardFarmer09123235 is ranked 218,883rd in the world and 10th in CardoTerraFormation for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -12.96 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
