OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Royal Autonomous Province of New Vinland is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Premiere James Bell with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 4.436 billion love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 Saint John's. The average income tax rate is 64%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, 'unconventional' weaponry has been banned, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 Presbyterian Reformed Protestant Church, and its currency is the franc.

New Vinland is ranked 16th in Lower Canada and 109,300th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -4 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
