The Free Land of Lindisfarne is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.306 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, although Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nittiesborg. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Lindisfarnean economy, worth 469 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. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,541 Sols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach, and restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Lindisfarne. 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 148,393rd in the world and 39th in Taijitu for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 9,679.2 Standard Monetary Units.
