The Republic of Lindsaystan is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 306 million Lindsaystanites 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Williamsburg. The average income tax rate is 34.8%.

The Lindsaystanian economy, worth 22.0 trillion North Pacific Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,855 North Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Eight-year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, the mentally ill are given high powered automatic weapons for "catharsis therapy", the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and the dartboard at the Lindsaystanian Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Leader's face. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lindsaystan's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lindsaystan is ranked 125,214th in the world and 6,397th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 451.8 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
