The People's Republic of Longanisa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Digbick with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.971 billion Longanisans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puteq. The average income tax rate is 49.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Longanisan economy, worth 367 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 186,373 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, saying the word 'eggplant' is now a criminal offense, citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Longanisa's national animal is the Longanisan hound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Longanisa is ranked 195,729th in the world and 10,126th in the Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -6.59 on the Hayek Index.
