Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rogue Nation of Cardistria is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.807 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, 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 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Cardistrian economy, worth 219 trillion Playing Cards a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,272 Playing Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Cardistria Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes, and citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process. 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 31,380th in the world and 905th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 352.5310938244 Days.
