The Socialist Republic of Linnaea is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.711 billion Linnaeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karlisle. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Linnaean economy, worth a remarkable 1,863 trillion linnaeuses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 191,914 linnaeuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. Crime is totally unknown. Linnaea's national animal is the marmot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Linnaea is ranked 210,641st in the world and 79th in Wintercrest for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.45 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
