The Armed Republic of Lingu is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mirko with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.706 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Linguan economy, worth a remarkable 1,732 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 258,400 hounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Works of historical fiction contain a surprising lack of historical figures, political activists are routinely executed, criminals are thrown to the bloodhounds to repay their debt to society, and children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse. 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 58,641st in the world and 1,287th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 3.29 Bank.
