OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Reo Linda is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 9.37 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Linda. The average income tax rate is 81%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, a major religion has been named as Reo Linda's national religion, and citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities. Crime is totally unknown. Reo Linda's national animal is the endangered species, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the fools gold.

Reo Linda is ranked 531st in Capitalist Paradise and 115,991st in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -6 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
