The Free Land of Lindisfarne is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.968 billion Lindisfarneans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nittiesborg. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Lindisfarnean economy, worth 693 trillion Sols a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 46,365 Sols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, '.lib' or '.con' domains indicate whether Lindisfarnean websites are meant for liberals or conservatives, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lindisfarne's national animal is the Snow Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lindisfarne is ranked 11,347th in the world and 9th in Taijitu for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 11,081.77 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
