Population2.227 billion



The Armed Republic of Lingu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mirko with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.227 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 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Linguan economy, worth 476 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 213,783 hounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Children often kick bloodhounds for amusement, citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins, the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, and it takes a village to catch a criminal. 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 82,594th in the world and 2,841st in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,018.25 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
