The Queen's State of Lyndell is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 26.359 billion Lyndellians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.
The very strong Lyndellian economy, worth a remarkable 1,272 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is 48,288 betales, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.
The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the tenet of free speech is held dear, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Lyndell's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
