The Republic of Card Shedland is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and enforced nudity. The hard-working, devout population of 115 million Card Shedlandians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 20.8%.
The Card Shedlandian economy, worth 6.00 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,131 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.
Many Card Shedlandians struggle to find outlets for their pent-up competitive juices, no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, and the government is reining in public spending. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Card Shedland's national animal is the turtle.
