The Republic of CardFarmer55006079 is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, fear of technology, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.145 billion Card Farmers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Card Farm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Card Farmer economy, worth a remarkable 1,183 trillion pounds 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. 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 amazing 229,979 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 690,971 per year while the poor average 59,751, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

Politicians spend a lot of time hanging around kids' playgrounds, the 'sing-a-long with Leader' album is a popular souvenir, politicians cheer the nation's surging death rate, and burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CardFarmer55006079's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

CardFarmer55006079 is ranked 63,850th in the world and 5th in CardoTerraFormation for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,397.77 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
