The Republic of Card Farmer 251 is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 3.439 billion Card Farmer 251ians 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, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 64.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 251ian economy, worth 448 trillion cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 130,397 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, subscribing to the Benevolence Society for Impoverished Leaders is an effective way to dodge the draft, and parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 251's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 251 is ranked 55,292nd in the world and 646th in Birb for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,746.89 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
