Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rogue Nation of Cardistria is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.423 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardistria City. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cardistrian economy, worth 162 trillion Playing Cards a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,120 Playing Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wreckages of bombed planes that litter Cardistria are highly popular tourist destinations, foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Cardistria will pay them to stop, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll. 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 141,924th in the world and 7,098th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.42 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
