The Republic of Card Farmer 1860 is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 506 million Card Farmer 1860ians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 39.0%.

The powerhouse Card Farmer 1860ian economy, worth 42.4 trillion cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,755 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts, candidates celebrate "free speech" by spraying champagne all over anyone who shows up to a rally, parents tell their children 'what a lovely mistake you turned out to be', and airport security is provided by private companies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 1860's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
