Linden Oak

Population10.096 billion


AnimalSciurus niger

The Free Land of Linden Oak is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rocket with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.096 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, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angel. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Oakian economy, worth 831 trillion Quercuses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,357 Quercuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The parliament building has installed a revolving door, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Quercuses each year, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. 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 38,744th in the world and 1,540th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,452.43 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
