The Seventeen States of Linkazonia is a
Linkazonia is an old nation. It has seen many revolutions. Some failed, and some lasted for a time, but the communist revolution was the most successful. It was not only able to seize power but retain it, building a nation of peace, prosperity and productivity. The leader of this revolution, Loseph Lion, kept order and law as well as maintaining the economy effectively. President Lion also expanded Linkazonian territory to fit the population accordingly and previously lived in a large red house known as Lion's den (from the Linkazonian national book "Alpha Lion"). In early 2016, Linkazonia joined The Chernobyl Union. Loseph Lion died of natural causes on April 22nd of 2013, bringing Eldar Kharmanov to power.
The Linkazonian economy has taken a downfall in recent months, due to major civil and political rights reforms. It was previously a powerhouse and produced a mjority of Chernobyl Union products.
It is traditional in Linkazonia to each year, on the day of the 4th of December to select five people from each of the Seventeen States and they will compete in a national event known as "The Memorial Marathon." The marathon consists of 85 contestants running a marathon from one side of the country to the other in a select route which is filled with obstacles and disruptive things. Whoever comes first in the marathon wins the "Lion Star Medal Award", an honor where the victor is crowned by none other than the President himself. The marathon has been present since pre-revolutionary times and has only recently (within the last 20 years) been dubbed it's name and only recently had awards to entail. The older version set one person from each state to run a marathon with mines and horrible snares to remind the people of the power of the oppressive government, hence the newer title "The Memorial Marathon." It also commemorates the fallen all those years ago as well as recent conflicts and tragedies.
