The Ancient Baptist Republic of New Waldensia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Peter Waldo with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.262 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 tiny 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 4.8%.

The frighteningly efficient New Waldensian economy, worth 650 trillion Lollards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 152,690 Lollards, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Prison reforms have replaced communal luaus with communal loos, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, and sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Waldensia's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Credobaptist Christianity.

New Waldensia is ranked 36,384th in the world and 57th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 8.19 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
