Linden Oak

Population11.821 billion


AnimalSciurus niger

The Free Land of Linden Oak is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rocket with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.821 billion Oakians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angel. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Oakian economy, worth a remarkable 1,270 trillion Quercuses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,456 Quercuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

A suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Oakian politicians, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and sex changes are routinely performed at Linden Oak's hospitals. Crime is totally unknown. Linden Oak's national animal is the Sciurus niger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Linden Oak is ranked 633rd in the world and 23rd in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 97.88 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
