The Dictatorial Federation of Lingang is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Hanna Welburg with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 18.693 billion Linganese are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strautenburg. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Linganese economy, worth a remarkable 5,471 trillion Mooks a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 292,719 Mooks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity, and screams of citizens being "re-educated" echo throughout the rural regions of Lingang. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lingang's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Apotheism.

Lingang is ranked 203,964th in the world and 124th in South Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.32 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
