Link and Stan

The Republic of Link and Stan is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.233 billion Link and Stanians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.8%.

The powerhouse Link and Stanian economy, worth 379 trillion Ramblazes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 89,618 Ramblazes, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, mechanics are often exhausted by their work, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Link and Stan's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Link and Stan is ranked 28,340th in the world and 17th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 53.9 Whatever.
