The Disputed Territories of Cards Plz is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 421 million Cards Plzians 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 52.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cards Plzian economy, worth 28.3 trillion Cardoes 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. 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 67,218 Cardoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

War criminals are given full state funerals, newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Cards Plz City" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cards Plz's national animal is the Cadinius, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Cards Plz is ranked 173,413th in the world and 5,531st in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 9.2 Obesity Rate.
