The Tree Shepherds of Lon Kra Con is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Treebeard with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 8.153 billion Lon Kra Conians 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, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fangorn. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lon Kra Conian economy, worth 711 trillion leaves a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,283 leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, survivors receive aid from only the most environmentally-friendly transport, religious leaders order congregants to love any neighbour who is just like themselves, and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lon Kra Con's national animal is the Rowan Tree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dark Green Religion.

Lon Kra Con is ranked 220,702nd in the world and 170th in Middle Earth for Most Avoided, scoring 0.31 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
