The Republic of Card Farmer 1847 is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 504 million Card Farmer 1847ians 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 prioritizes Law & Order, although Healthcare, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.4%.

The powerhouse Card Farmer 1847ian economy, worth 38.3 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 76,031 cards, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 1847's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
