The Socialist Republic of Linnaea is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.431 billion Linnaeans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karlisle. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Linnaean economy, worth a remarkable 2,486 trillion linnaeuses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 200,048 linnaeuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, the only things written in the stars are arrest warrants for astrologers, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. Crime is totally unknown. Linnaea's national animal is the marmot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Linnaea is ranked 2,644th in the world and 4th in Hippy Haven for Smartest Citizens, with 165.98 quips per hour.
