Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Lindisfarne is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.49 billion Lindisfarneans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nittiesborg. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Lindisfarnean economy, worth 394 trillion Sols a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,720 Sols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', and sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lindisfarne's national animal is the Snow Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lindisfarne is ranked 135,509th in the world and 81st in Taijitu for Most Conservative, scoring 27.38 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
