The Ancient Baptist Republic of New Waldensia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Peter Waldo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.468 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valdenton. The average income tax rate is 19.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Waldensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,219 trillion Lollards a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,046 Lollards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to New Waldensian politicians, Peter Waldo is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, New Waldensian junkies argue that poppy stalks are ornamental flowers, and the government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly. 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 123,029th in the world and 35th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 54 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
