The Republic of Card Farmer 1846 is a huge, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, avant-garde cinema, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 484 million Card Farmer 1846ians 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 61.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Card Farmer 1846ian economy, worth 38.5 trillion cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,484 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Surveillance cameras are banned, Leader claims to be the epitome of family values, citizens who leave the nation for work are instantly charged with treason, and EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise. 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 1846's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 1846 is ranked 177,735th in the world and 1,771st in Birb for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -0.84 on the Hayek Index.
