The Linn of Lann is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lynn with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.062 billion Lannians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lann City. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lannian economy, worth a remarkable 2,407 trillion Lanns a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 141,121 Lanns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to own a mobile phone, the government snoops on private internet connections, auditors are gutting every governmental department, and money is being desperately pumped into the ruined economy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lann's national animal is the camel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lonniism.

Lann is ranked 12,275th in the world and 1st in International Union of States for Most Avoided, scoring 268.99 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
