The Royal Maritime Union of New Vinland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Theodore Paddington with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.748 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 Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halifax. The average income tax rate is 69.9%.

The frighteningly efficient New Vinlandic economy, worth a remarkable 2,276 trillion Canadian dollars 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 144,577 Canadian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, corporate lobbying has been outlawed, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and the police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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, and its national religion is The Anglican Protestant Church.

New Vinland is ranked 15,034th in the world and 19th in Canada for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,585.06 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
