The Republic of Card Farmer 68 is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.155 billion Card Farmer 68ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 65.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer 68ian economy, worth 599 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 large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 116,236 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, endangered species are effective hostages against the Card Farmer 68ian military, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Farmer 68's national animal is the farming, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Card Farmer 68 is ranked 186,087th in the world and 2,251st in Birb for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -3.95 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
