The Armed Republic of Lingord is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 3.525 billion Lingordians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lingordian economy, worth 367 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,241 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling, and seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lingord's national animal is the Lingordian Breegull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lingord is ranked 216,348th in the world and 7,407th in Lazarus for Rudest Citizens, with 8.07 Insults Per Minute.
