The Republic of Card Farmer 1182 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its closed borders, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.577 billion Card Farmer 1182ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 1182ian economy, worth 187 trillion cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 118,618 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens, organ donation is compulsory, the big red machine has ground to a halt, and endangered species are effective hostages against the Card Farmer 1182ian military. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 1182's national animal is the farming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Card Farmer 1182 is ranked 107,067th in the world and 1,757th in Birb for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 620.82 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
