The Principality of Cardmania9006 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, digital currency, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.5 billion Cardmania9006ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Public Transport and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cardmania9006ian economy, worth 583 trillion Deneroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 129,712 Deneroes, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars, you can tell when Cardmania9006ians are being snarky by the fact their lips are moving, the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, and Leader claims tax rises are the result of 'curses'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cardmania9006's national animal is the ardvarke, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Cardmania9006 is ranked 106,891st in the world and 1st in Radical Region for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 0.04 Bank.
