The Dem Socialist Republic of The Cardwith Islands is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Charles Nellis with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 14.078 billion Cardwithians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noritts. The average income tax rate is 89.5%.

The Cardwithian economy, worth 862 trillion Tupas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 61,236 Tupas, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Widespread voter apathy has been credited to allegations that all candidates are puppets of Charles Nellis, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, private law firms are unheard of, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cardwith Islands's national animal is the Howler Monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Cardwith Islands is ranked 138,201st in the world and 5th in Wishton Polynesia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -5.48 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
