The Republic of New Lindale is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Nicholas Cumberland with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 9.02 billion Lindalites are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albany. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Lindali economy, worth a remarkable 1,442 trillion Lindale Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 159,925 Lindale Kroner, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, acrimonious legal battles result during divorce proceedings, artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common, and many of the country's largest dumps can be seen from space. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Lindale's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

New Lindale is ranked 15,411th in the world and 1st in New West Balkans for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 309.74 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
