The Federation of Lingoni is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 164 million Lingonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The very strong Lingonian economy, worth 10.3 trillion Euros a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 62,635 Euros, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 470,064 per year while the poor average 2,403, a ratio of 195 to 1.

Kids are exceptionally good at digging holes, the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed, the well-off can quite literally buy extra votes, and the navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Lingoni's national animal is the Chicken, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lingoni is ranked 144,069th in the world and 221st in The Empire of Mare Nostrum for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -8.94 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
