The Financial Services of MasterCard Gold Card is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by MasterCard Incorporated with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.831 billion MasterCard Gold Cardians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Purchase New York. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.6%.

The frighteningly efficient MasterCard Gold Cardian economy, worth 276 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 97,664 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 475,758 per year while the poor average 11,553, a ratio of 41.2 to 1.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. MasterCard Gold Card's national animal is the great white shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is MasterCard.

MasterCard Gold Card is ranked 56,050th in the world and 14th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,440.51 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
