Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Royal Maritime Union of New Vinland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Theodore Paddington with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.005 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 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 55.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Vinlandic economy, worth a remarkable 1,606 trillion Maritime pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,962 Maritime pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, and the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks. 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 2,550th in the world and 15th in Canada for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.12 Years.
