The Rogue Nation of Cardmania90051 is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.298 billion Cardmania90051ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cardmania90051ian economy, worth 979 trillion Yen a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 134,218 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site, gun ownership is compulsory, recapturing giraffes is proving to be a tall order, and the transit system is throwing poor people under the bus. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cardmania90051's national animal is the Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cardmania90051 is ranked 32,989th in the world and 1st in Aberconwy for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 172.23 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
