The Communist Republic of Linkers Sha is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Bung Petrus with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.269 billion Linkers Shans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Linker City. The average income tax rate is 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Linkers Shan economy, worth a remarkable 1,415 trillion Rs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 194,793 Rs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Even God cannot save you in Linkers Sha, the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Linkers Sha's national animal is the Komodo Dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Makmurian.

Linkers Sha is ranked 32,297th in the world and 25th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,088.2 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
