The Armed Republic of Lingu is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Mirko with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, complete lack of prisons, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.74 billion Linguans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Linguan economy, worth 597 trillion hounds a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 217,978 hounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

People think "siege mentality" is a positive trait, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, and quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lingu's national animal is the bloodhound, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lingu is ranked 3,844th in the world and 110th in The East Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 47,146.16 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
