The Lonely Tree Shepherds of Lon Kra Con is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Treebeard with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate population of 9.519 billion Kronians 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 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Lon Kra Conian economy, worth 991 trillion leaves a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,109 leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, there's more hugging than talking in most talk shows, and the number of students attending university has reached a record high. Crime 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 14,538th in the world and 10th in Middle Earth for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 6,282.72 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
