The Community of Linkisheer is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lucy Romayre with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The compassionate, devout population of 16.809 billion Yellabellies are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lincoln. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Yellabelly economy, worth a remarkable 1,306 trillion Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,755 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Increasing numbers of children in Linkisheer have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Lincoln to enjoy their national art, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, and traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Linkisheer's national animal is the badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Old Catholic Church.

Linkisheer is ranked 28,428th in the world and 334th in Europe for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 159.2 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
