The Free Land of Lindisfarne is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, intelligent population of 3.711 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, socially-minded 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 44%, but much higher for the wealthy. A tiny private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, the government seizes all major gold finds, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape. 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 27th in Taijitu and 37,020th in the world for Best Weather, with 10 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
