The Royal Maritime Union of New Vinland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Wilfred Preston-Cole with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.369 billion New Vinlanders enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized, liberal 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 48.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient New Vinlandic economy, worth a remarkable 1,194 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 142,762 New Vinland pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, students cut up leftover New Vinland pounds during Arts and Crafts, protests are legal but strictly supervised, and artists are pillars of society. 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 Reformed Protestant Church.
