The Republic of Undercard 3 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cardy Cardigan with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.263 billion Undercardashians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardiff. The average income tax rate is 42.9%.

The Undercardashian economy, worth 136 trillion punched cards a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,405 punched cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The monarch's main official duty is christening ships, Undercardashian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, seats at the back of the bus are reserved for homosexuals, and truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Undercard 3's national animal is the technical knockout, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Undercard 3 is ranked 62,800th in the world and 5th in Main Event for Most Influential, scoring 308 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
