The Free Land of Lindisfarne is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 3.114 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 41%, but much higher for the wealthy. A tiny private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, all guns must be registered, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. 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 1,369th in Balder and 43,145th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 2 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
