The Hibernian Kingdom of Landinium is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Ausbhuen VI with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.016 billion Landina are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dublin. The average income tax rate is 73.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Landinian economy, worth 416 trillion dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 138,126 dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Dublin Natural History Museum, calling dibs is an unalienable right, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, and the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Landinium's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Zoroastrianism.

Landinium is ranked 11,313th in the world and 20th in The Democratic Commonwealth for Most Authoritarian, with 2.8 Stalins.
