The Cardashian Exploits of Undercard 3 is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cardy Cardigan with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.154 billion Undercardashians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardiff. The average income tax rate is 53.1%.

The strong Undercardashian economy, worth 374 trillion punched cards a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,903 punched cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Every workday begins with group therapy, the new prison system is crowding up at an alarming rate, superfoods are often seen as supervillains, and airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Undercard 3's national animal is the technical knockout, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the nondenominational card game church.

Undercard 3 is ranked 248,527th in the world and 102nd in Main Event for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -12 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
