The Republic of Line-1 is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 12.287 billion Line-1ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 44.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Line-1ian economy, worth 495 trillion $$s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,338 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, tabloids coo over Leader's expected child, and the government has pledged that not one drop of its citizens' blood will be spilt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Line-1's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Line-1 is ranked 54,160th in the world and 1st in Line Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,760.7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
