The Royal Maritime Union of New Vinland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister James Bell with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.356 billion New Vinlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LaFontaine. The average income tax rate is 68%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, and the newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Vinland's national animal is the Canada Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is The Anglican Lutheran Reformed Union, and its currency is the New Vinland pound.

New Vinland is ranked 156th in Canada and 105,347th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -22 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
