The Waldensian Baptist Empire of New Waldensia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Peter Waldo with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.011 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 6.7%.

The frighteningly efficient New Waldensian economy, worth 400 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 133,113 Lollards, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", the nation's police officers are famously miserable-looking, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, and troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist. 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 50,134th in the world and 36th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,120.58 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
