Lingord

Population1.503 billion

The Armed Republic of Lingord is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.503 billion Lingordians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Welfare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lingordian economy, worth 135 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is 90,091 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, and young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield. 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 3,131st in the world and 95th in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 43 Valid Endorsements.
