The Strategic Nuclear Command of New Waldensia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Peter Waldo with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.431 billion New Waldensians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valdenton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The frighteningly efficient New Waldensian economy, worth 461 trillion Lollards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 134,548 Lollards, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

There's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, the nation is now proudly cholera-free, schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand, and people say chess victor Peter Waldo can kill you with mind-bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Waldensia's national animal is the Fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Credobaptist Christianity.

New Waldensia is ranked 46,882nd in the world and 33rd in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 1,870.84 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
