The Republic of Card Farmer 244 is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.372 billion Card Farmer 244ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 47.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 244ian economy, worth 398 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,112 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, and a petition to make petitions important again has been deemed unimportant. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 244's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 244 is ranked 180,000th in the world and 2,910th in Birb for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -3.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
