The Protectorate of Card Gardens is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.268 billion Gardeners 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 medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 23.3%.

The powerhouse Gardener economy, worth 179 trillion Cards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,154 Cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's new office has a propensity to catch on fire, many Gardeners struggle to find outlets for their pent-up competitive juices, the price of freedom is about half a million Cards, and people wouldn't be seen dead without their guns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Gardens's national animal is the Card, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Card Gardens is ranked 162,339th in the world and 79th in Card Gardens for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
