Linden Oak

Population12.316 billion


AnimalSciurus niger

The Free Land of Linden Oak is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rocket with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 12.316 billion Oakians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angel. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Oakian economy, worth a remarkable 1,366 trillion Quercuses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,966 Quercuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, women have a strange proclivity for dressing up as caped weasels, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, and multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks. Crime is totally unknown. Linden Oak's national animal is the Sciurus niger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Linden Oak is ranked 218,596th in the world and 8,266th in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -12.06 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
