The Republic of Card Farmer 243 is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.386 billion Card Farmer 243ians 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, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 75.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 243ian economy, worth 433 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,120 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, citizens are prohibited from raising their voice above thirty decibels in commercial districts, vaccinations are mandatory, and almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 243's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 243 is ranked 29,333rd in the world and 200th in Birb for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,622.12 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
