The Free Land of Lindisfarne is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its restrictive gun laws. Its intelligent population of 3.071 billion 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 morass -- 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 37%, but much higher for the wealthy. A tiny private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. Crime is totally unknown. Lindisfarne's national animal is the Snow Owl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Sol.

Lindisfarne is ranked 2,217th in Balder and 73,597th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 17 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
