The Queen's State of Linton is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.96 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 518 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 37,158 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 360,277 per year while the poor average 184, a ratio of 1,948 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 167,377th in the world and 6th in Dodoma for Most Income Equality, scoring 0.05 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
