The Republic of Card Farmer 1833 is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 521 million Card Farmer 1833ians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 49.2%.

The powerhouse Card Farmer 1833ian economy, worth 38.4 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 73,753 cards, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, and the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 1833's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 1833 is ranked 94,544th in the world and 1,086th in Birb for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,151.27 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
