The Republic of Kaartenhuis23 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 2.69 billion Kaartenhuis23ians 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 government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 53.2%.

The thriving Kaartenhuis23ian economy, worth 214 trillion Cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,876 Cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Army uniforms are replaced en masse to accommodate adult soldiers, the government seizes all major gold finds, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, and hospitals have to sell their computers on vBay in order to afford the ransomware decryption payments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaartenhuis23's national animal is the Legendary Card, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kaartenhuis23 is ranked 233,144th in the world and 5,715th in Lazarus for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -11 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
