The Incorporated States of NSC Puppet 8 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.859 billion NSC Puppet 8ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.2%.

The powerhouse NSC Puppet 8ian economy, worth 153 trillion cards a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,452 cards, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 250,351 per year while the poor average 21,103, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

Citizen radio operators agree that the certification test can open up a world of hertz, diminutive NSC Puppet 8ian generals are feared for their aggressiveness, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. NSC Puppet 8's national animal is the legendary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NSC Puppet 8 is ranked 65,036th in the world and 475th in Second Best Card Farm for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,048.29 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
