The Dem Socialist Republic of The Cardwith Islands is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Charles Nellis with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 18.523 billion Cardwithians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noritts. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cardwithian economy, worth 990 trillion Tupas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 53,495 Tupas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, senior executives have become freelance basket-weavers in search of less stress and better work-life balance, the tribal zone has been opened to up to 'economic interest' groups, and the government insists that bizarre Lilliputian language game shows were made domestically. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cardwith Islands's national animal is the Howler Monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Cardwith Islands is ranked 174,794th in the world and 6th in Wishtonia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.01 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
