The Confederacy of Undercard 4 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Cardy Cardigan with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.277 billion Undercardashians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardiff. The average income tax rate is 33.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Undercardashian economy, worth 150 trillion punched cards a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,265 punched cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's historic treasures have been sold off to Maxtopia's "Museum of Undercardashian Artifacts That They're Too Stupid to Appreciate", several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, and vacationing hippies and old ladies are regularly arrested for bringing back contraband basketry. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Undercard 4's national animal is the technical knockout.

Undercard 4 is ranked 13,335th in the world and 3rd in Main Event for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 5,354.39 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
