The Armed Republic of Lingu
“We See All”
|Category: Iron Fist Consumerists|
Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Squire
The Armed Republic of Lingu is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 565 million Linguans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Linguan economy, worth 86.6 trillion hounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,239 hounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 809,772 per year while the poor average 15,400, a ratio of 52.6 to 1.
All artwork is carefully screened for offensive material, several inches are being added to first class seating, 75% of the words in government-funded "Super Fun Maths Games" are probably inaccurate, and annual government budgets include a sizeable spend on "making things look fabulous". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lingu's national animal is the bloodhound, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
