The Empire of Cardmania900107 is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.472 billion Cardmania900107ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cardmania900107ian economy, worth 701 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,277 Euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 366,220 per year while the poor average 35,809, a ratio of 10.2 to 1.

Aristocratic family trees are beginning to resemble tumbleweeds, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, tax assessment offices double as polling stations, and the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cardmania900107's national animal is the Vulture, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Cardmania900107 is ranked 239,649th in the world and 9,500th in Lazarus for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -8.37 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
