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 public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 21.284 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tren. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lynierian economy, worth a remarkable 2,795 trillion Lyns a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,347 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 73,920th in the world and 2,884th in the West Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 968.98 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
