The Republic of Card Farmer 250 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avowedly heterosexual populace, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.422 billion Card Farmer 250ians 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, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 66.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 250ian economy, worth 439 trillion cards a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 128,421 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Genetic research has been halted, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", the government has returned all business to private ownership, and ceremonial zweihänders are used in holy rituals. 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 250's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 250 is ranked 29,719th in the world and 1,315th in Birb for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 4,342.48 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
