The Rogue Nation of Card Bou 57 is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 875 million Card Bou 57ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Bou 57ian economy, worth 71.1 trillion Dollars a year, is dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 81,214 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 440,293 per year while the poor average 7,730, a ratio of 57.0 to 1.

Card Bou 57 City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, army rations are served on silver platters, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Card Bou 57's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Card Bou 57 is ranked 65,380th in the world and 73rd in Holmond Holdings for Largest Governments, scoring 16.52 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
