The Rogue Nation of Cardistria is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.155 billion Cardistrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardistria City. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Cardistrian economy, worth 279 trillion Playing Cards a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,634 Playing Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, and the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cardistria's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cardistria is ranked 12,249th in the world and 352nd in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 218 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
