The District of Linton is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by privy council chairman with a fair hand, and notable for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 20.418 billion Lintonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The very strong Lintonian economy, worth 748 trillion Juno aurums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 36,645 Juno aurums, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 249,147 per year while the poor average 1,969, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, Linton has designated District City as its capital city, and Privy council chairman has just been declared ruler of Linton in an international press conference. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Linton's national animal is the quick pink fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Linton is ranked 193,536th in the world and 10th in Dodoma for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring zero on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
