The Armed Republic of Lingu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mirko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, disturbing lack of elderly people, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.574 billion Linguans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Linguan economy, worth 335 trillion hounds a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 212,839 hounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Mechanics are often exhausted by their work, criminals are really screwed, women mime their gynaecological symptoms with hand-puppets, and Linguans believe manners maketh the leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lingu's national animal is the bloodhound, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lingu is ranked 227,765th in the world and 8,682nd in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 11.57 Tourists Per Hour.
