Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Lindef is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Unholy Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.076 billion Lindefians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lindentown. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The large but inefficient Lindefian economy, worth 617 trillion starks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,270 starks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, the Lindef Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, and rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lindef's national animal is the koankey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lindef is ranked 9,881st in the world and 123rd in Europeia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,364.81 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
