The Borderlands of Card containment is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by the fabled one TRUE card with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.275 billion Card containmentians 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 juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of cardin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Card containmentian economy, worth 111 trillion cards a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 87,158 cards, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

'I'm Coming Out' has shot to the top of the nation's music charts, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, and prisoners have been known to host cooking and home décor television shows. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Card containment's national animal is the box and its national religion is CARD CARD CARD CARD.

Card containment is ranked 173,863rd in the world and 26th in Testregionia for Most Armed, with 0.25 Weapons Per Person.
