The Incorporated States of NSC19 is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 476 million NSC19ians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 31.8%.

The all-consuming NSC19ian economy, worth 37.5 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,751 cards, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, all artwork is carefully screened for offensive material, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NSC19's national animal is the legendary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NSC19 is ranked 84,968th in the world and 442nd in Second Best Card Farm for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,486.41 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
