The Allied States of Cardmania90085 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.514 billion Cardmania90085ians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cardmania90085ian economy, worth 525 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,390 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes, metal detectors at school gates make sure that teenagers are carrying at least one sidearm, returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been banned for advocating gluttony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cardmania90085's national animal is the Giraffe, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cardmania90085 is ranked 141,662nd in the world and 4,210th in Balder for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.79 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
