The Commonwealth of Undercard 19 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Cardy Cardigan with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The quiet, industrious population of 1.678 billion Undercard 19ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Welfare, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardiff. The average income tax rate is 31.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Undercard 19ian economy, worth 62.7 trillion cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,382 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Undercard 19's national animal is the suit.

Undercard 19 is ranked 123,712th in the world and 37th in Main Event for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 61.23 on the Hayek Index.
