The Incorporated States of NSC Puppet 75 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 1.866 billion NSC Puppet 75ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.6%.

The thriving NSC Puppet 75ian economy, worth 160 trillion cards 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 large, well-organized black market in Gambling, Retail, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance 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 86,173 cards, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government's official stance on scientific inquiry is 'there's no question so big that it can't be ignored', terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. NSC Puppet 75's national animal is the legendary, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

NSC Puppet 75 is ranked 24,865th in the world and 114th in Second Best Card Farm for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,982.54 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
