The Republic of Card Farmer 1821 is a huge, safe nation, notable for its parental licensing program, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 519 million Card Farmer 1821ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 1821ian economy, worth 43.7 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 84,207 cards, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, and shanty towns have formed around the newly rebuilt commercial district. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 1821's national animal is the farming, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Card Farmer 1821 is ranked 126,273rd in the world and 1,747th in Birb for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 256.84 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
