The Congress of Lendenburgh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Oscar I with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.363 billion Lenburghers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magdeburg. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lendenien economy, worth a remarkable 1,552 trillion Lendenburgh Reichsmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,542 Lendenburgh Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money grows on trees, nine-year-olds' chat logs are scoured for evidence of radicalization, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lendenburgh's national animal is the Eurasian Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lendenburgh is ranked 299,445th in the world and 32nd in Democritus for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -8.94 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
