The Free Land of Lindisfarne is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 3.597 billion Lindisfarneans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nittiesborg. The average income tax rate is 43%, but much higher for the wealthy. A tiny private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown. Lindisfarne's national animal is the Snow Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Sol.

Lindisfarne is ranked 932nd in Lazarus and 23,202nd in the world for Safest, scoring 180 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
