The Republic of Card Farmer 893 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 1.653 billion Card Farmer 893ians 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 893ian economy, worth 222 trillion cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 134,429 cards, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

The legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system, the homeless more often beg for mercy than money, tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, and increasing numbers of children in Card Farmer 893 have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 893's national animal is the farming, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Card Farmer 893 is ranked 6,222nd in the world and 427th in Birb for Nudest, with 1,055.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
