The Excessively Armed State of Lynier is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lynerian High Command with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 27.466 billion Lynierians 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 enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tren. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lynierian economy, worth a remarkable 3,307 trillion Lyns a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,416 Lyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, many friends and relatives of Lynerian High Command have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and Lynerian High Command claims to be the epitome of family values. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lynier's national animal is the Wild Tank, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Prodacathox.

Lynier is ranked 49,091st in the world and 1,570th in the West Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,011.78 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
