The Dominion of Cardmania90067 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.556 billion Cardmania90067ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 69.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Cardmania90067ian economy, worth 603 trillion Credits 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 black market in Woodchip Exports, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. 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 132,438 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, the military claims that their threatening letters are signed with the blood of their enemies, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and reassembling shredded papers is the highlight of a spy's day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cardmania90067's national animal is the Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cardmania90067 is ranked 60,549th in the world and 2,087th in Lazarus for Rudest Citizens, with 65.14 Insults Per Minute.
