The Corrugated Shantytown of Cardboard Lootbox is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Loot Boxcard with a fair hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, national health service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.79 billion Cardsharks hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hooverville. The average income tax rate is 63.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Lootboxing economy, worth a remarkable 1,120 trillion Cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 233,902 Cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, and only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare. Crime is totally unknown. Cardboard Lootbox's national animal is the Legendary Epic, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Card Hunting.

Cardboard Lootbox is ranked 56,777th in the world and 78th in Spiritus for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,716.75 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
