The Republic of Card Farmer 1674 is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, anti-smoking policies, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 479 million Card Farmer 1674ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.0%.

The powerhouse Card Farmer 1674ian economy, worth 35.5 trillion cards a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,181 cards, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, the Card Farmer 1674ian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, and meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 1674's national animal is the farming.

Card Farmer 1674 is ranked 148,870th in the world and 1,092nd in Birb for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 40.03 on the Hayek Index.
