The Ancient Baptist Republic of New Waldensia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Peter Waldo with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.861 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, outspoken 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 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient New Waldensian economy, worth 582 trillion Lollards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 150,807 Lollards, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and all footpaths have tollbooths. 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 48,006th in the world and 18th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Largest Populations, with 3.86 billion Capita.
