The People's Republic of Lynxcia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by High Commissar Halden Hadwyn with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 18.991 billion Lynxians 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, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aradon. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lynxcian economy, worth a remarkable 1,436 trillion Steel Republicans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 75,656 Steel Republicans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, political dissidents are cut off from essential services, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, and the government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lynxcia's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lynxcia is ranked 178,252nd in the world and 10th in Valkia for Most Pro-Market, scoring -74.11 on the Rand Index.
