The Queen's State of Linton is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 15.603 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The very strong Lintonian economy, worth 571 trillion betales 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 betales, 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 and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Linton's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Linton is ranked 128,939th in the world and 7th in Dodoma for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring zero on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
