Linden Oak

Population11.846 billion


AnimalSciurus niger

The Free Land of Linden Oak is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Rocket with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.846 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 Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angel. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Oakian economy, worth a remarkable 1,276 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 common. Average income is an impressive 107,727 Quercuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, sex changes are routinely performed at Linden Oak's hospitals, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and Oakian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. 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 194,518th in the world and 7,831st in the South Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -10.58 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
