The Dealer's Choice of Three Cards is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Dealer with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-working, cynical population of 2.892 billion Three Cardsians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blackjack City. The average income tax rate is 31.1%.

The thriving Three Cardsian economy, worth 175 trillion Dollar bills a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 60,702 Dollar bills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are more concerned about voting for Big Brother contestants than politicians, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, traffic cops are puzzled to see that nobody exceeds the speed limits, and homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Three Cards's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Casino Addiction.

Three Cards is ranked 67,122nd in the world and 25th in Memeland for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,895.3 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
