The Dominion of Cool Card Bank is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its vat-grown people, anti-smoking policies, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.207 billion Cool Card Bankians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.3%.

The powerhouse Cool Card Bankian economy, worth 196 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,827 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 293,218 per year while the poor average 20,132, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

Everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, former televangelists are often seen begging skateboarders for donations, and armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cool Card Bank's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cool Card Bank is ranked 186,168th in the world and 768th in Europeia for Most Secular, with 13.52 Atheism Rate.
