The Dictatorship of Linnock is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Main Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.765 billion Linnockians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Main city. The average income tax rate is 42.0%.

The sizeable but inefficient Linnockian economy, worth 83.1 trillion KMS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 30,060 KMS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Linnockian mussels the biggest in Oneid, young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, and women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms. Crime is well under control, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Linnock's national animal is the bison, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Cult of personality.

Linnock is ranked 32,566th in the world and 85th in Oneid for Most Extreme, scoring 32.61 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
