The Protectorate of Western Card Storage G is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The West Pacific Farmer with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.724 billion Card Farmers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Card Cathedral. The average income tax rate is 59.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer economy, worth 322 trillion Golden Orbs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,324 Golden Orbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Card Farmer Liberator", noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, when shaking hands with foreign leaders The West Pacific Farmer wears an armoured gauntlet, and the nation is a world leader in martyrs per capita. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western Card Storage G's national animal is the Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Card Farming.

Western Card Storage G is ranked 9,519th in the world and 1st in The West Pacific Card Club for Largest Black Market, with 115 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
