The Republic of Card Farmer 1853 is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 507 million Card Farmer 1853ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.1%.

The thriving Card Farmer 1853ian economy, worth 45.3 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 89,374 cards, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash", and the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 1853's national animal is the farming, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
