Linden Oak

Population13.259 billion


AnimalSciurus niger

The Free Land of Linden Oak is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rocket with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.259 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 receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angel. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Oakian economy, worth a remarkable 1,561 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. Average income is an impressive 117,735 Quercuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and board shorts have replaced board rooms. 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 30,487th in the world and 727th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 80.38 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
