The Sultanate of Cardonistania is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, prohibition of alcohol, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 778 million Cardonistanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardontuktu. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Cardonistanian economy, worth 32.8 trillion vouchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 42,184 vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, foreign governments regularly accuse the Cardonistanian military of war crimes, and the nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cardonistania's national animal is the scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cardonistania is ranked 225,165th in the world and 1,220th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.85 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
