The Armed Republic of Lingord is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate population of 1.352 billion Lingordians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Defense, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lingordian economy, worth 132 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 97,644 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Lingordian Liberator", friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, troops are either deafened by gunfire or a hysterical voice screaming the Party manifesto, and nations that kill a Lingordian can expect a strongly worded letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lingord's national animal is the Lingordian Breegull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lingord is ranked 70,937th in the world and 2,794th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,683.2 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
