The Republic of Card Farmer 248 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.357 billion Card Farmer 248ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 248ian economy, worth 452 trillion cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 134,934 cards, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, and Maths Professor Barbie is the most popular toy for boys and girls alike. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 248's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 248 is ranked 121,343rd in the world and 1,883rd in Birb for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 873.4 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
