The Royal Maritime Union of New Vinland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Felix Thomas Hoover with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.718 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 Halifax. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, anti-government web sites are springing up, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. 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-Presbyterian Protestant Church, and its currency is the New Vinland pound.

New Vinland is ranked 171st in Canada and 118,229th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -48 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
