The Verdant Viridescence of Green Card 07 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jade Absinthe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.51 billion UnCommon Cards are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emerald City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The all-consuming Green economy, worth 286 trillion UnCommons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,272 UnCommons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 490,054 per year while the poor average 17,055, a ratio of 28.7 to 1.

Virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Emerald City, anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, and the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Green Card 07's national animal is the Lush Lime, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is UnCommon Cardolism.

Green Card 07 is ranked 197,034th in the world and 123rd in Last Flight for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 468.2 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
