The Republic of Card Farmer 247 is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, avant-garde cinema, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.395 billion Card Farmer 247ians 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 49.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 247ian economy, worth 353 trillion cards a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,160 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government is reining in public spending, punitive tariffs protect local industry, Card Farmer 247 City's flashy holiday light displays can be seen from space, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 247's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 247 is ranked 19,728th in the world and 820th in Birb for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 5,893.78 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
