The Royal Maritime Union of New Vinland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Wilfred Preston-Cole with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.418 billion New Vinlanders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halifax. The average income tax rate is 33.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient New Vinlandic economy, worth a remarkable 1,023 trillion New Vinland pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,014 New Vinland pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', and Canada Lynx is one of the most popular forenames in New Vinland. Crime is totally unknown. New Vinland's national animal is the Canada Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Anglican Protestant Church.
