The Incorporated States of NSC6 is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 454 million NSC6ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.9%.

The powerhouse NSC6ian economy, worth 37.3 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 82,109 cards, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls, historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and a large concrete wall is being built around the country's borders. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NSC6's national animal is the legendary, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

NSC6 is ranked 89,139th in the world and 740th in Second Best Card Farm for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 34.91 Effective Tax Rate.
