The Commonwealth of Card Captor Pacifica is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by XoriGarth McDurthang with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.272 billion Card Captor Pacificans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elegarth City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Captor Pacifican economy, worth 189 trillion Gold Coins a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,383 Gold Coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 376,917 per year while the poor average 11,339, a ratio of 33.2 to 1.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, a government program is underway to revitalize Card Captor Pacifica's beaches, the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year, and every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Captor Pacifica's national animal is the Black Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Card Captor Pacifica is ranked 146,529th in the world and 17th in Card Captor Pacifica for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 42.04 on the Hayek Index.
