The Lonely Tree Shepherds of Lon Kra Con is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Treebeard with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.528 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, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fangorn. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lon Kra Conian economy, worth a remarkable 1,323 trillion leaves a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,800 leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, and tourists are forbidden to enter Native Lon Kra Conian lands. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 45,436th in the world and 25th in The Labyrinth for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 130.46 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
