The Corrugated Shantytown of Cardboard Lootbox is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Loot Boxcard with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.193 billion Cardsharks 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hooverville. The average income tax rate is 63.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lootboxing economy, worth a remarkable 1,258 trillion Cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 242,254 Cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Diaper sales are up, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. Crime is totally unknown. Cardboard Lootbox's national animal is the Legendary Epic, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Card Hunting.

Cardboard Lootbox is ranked 27,976th in the world and 38th in Spiritus for Nudest, with 210.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
