The Republic of Lincoln Village is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Tut with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.085 billion Lincoln Villageans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milwaukee. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Lincoln Villagean economy, worth 559 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 181,220 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Lincoln Villageans are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, drug-related crimes carry the death penalty, randomly bombing neighboring countries has become the new national sport, and nations that kill a Lincoln Villagean can expect a strongly worded letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lincoln Village's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lincoln Village is ranked 18,983rd in the world and 557th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 76.33 on the Human Development Index.
