Linden Oak

Population9.734 billion


AnimalSciurus niger

The Free Land of Linden Oak is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Rocket with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.734 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, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angel. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Oakian economy, worth 826 trillion Quercuses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,857 Quercuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The tightness of border controls in Linden Oak leave a little to be desired, to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive, lobotomised jaywalkers can barely ambulate let alone repeat their offences, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. 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 7,528th in the world and 181st in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 219.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
