The Armed Republic of Lingu is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 389 million Linguans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.6%.
The all-consuming Linguan economy, worth 51.7 trillion hounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 132,960 hounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 836,001 per year while the poor average 8,908, a ratio of 93.8 to 1.
Lingu's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, super-powered zombies parade through the streets of Lingu City, taxi drivers seem less xenophobic these days, and in pet stores nationwide bloodhounds are growing in popularity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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.
