The Royal Maritime Union of New Vinland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister James Bell with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.541 billion New Vinlanders 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 Montreal. The average income tax rate is 68%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

New Vinland's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in New Vinland's many privately-owned prisons, the government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, and unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave. 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 Anglo-Reformed Protestant Church, and its currency is the New Vinland pound.

New Vinland is ranked 117th in Canada and 86,580th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -9 on the Hayek Index.
