The Republic of Linx is a massive, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.417 billion Linxians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisboa. The average income tax rate is 64.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Linxian economy, worth 169 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 119,916 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation is compulsory, vaccinations are mandatory, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and "It was only a joke" is no longer a defense for the felony of discrimination. Crime is totally unknown. Linx's national animal is the Iberian Linx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Linx is ranked 189,465th in the world and 110th in The United Federations for Most Primitive, scoring -260.03 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
