The Republic of Kardinal 8 is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 148 million Kardinal 8ians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 20.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Kardinal 8ian economy, worth 6.33 trillion cards a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,763 cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kardinal 8's national animal is the kard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kardinal 8 is ranked 18,010th in the world and 632nd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,666.57 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
