The Communist Republic of Linkers Sha is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Bung Petrus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, prohibition of alcohol, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.84 billion Linkers Shans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Linkers Shan economy, worth 947 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 195,739 Rs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, endangered bison are herded across the border to prevent them from trampling on native prairie grass, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and even God cannot save you in Linkers Sha. 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 20,517th in the world and 19th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,480.24 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
