Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Royal Maritime Union of New Vinland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Wilfred Preston-Cole with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.217 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 32.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Vinlandic economy, worth 996 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 138,110 New Vinland pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, 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, and there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons'. 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.

New Vinland is ranked 95th in Canada and 59,827th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 7 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
