The Royal Maritime Union of New Vinland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister James Bell with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.985 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 71%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', students cut up leftover New Vinland pounds during Arts and Crafts, anti-government web sites are springing up, and all footpaths have tollbooths. 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 Presbyterian Protestant Church, and its currency is the New Vinland pound.

New Vinland is ranked 23rd in Canada and 3,031st in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 41 on the Enoch Index.
