The Ancient Baptist Republic of New Waldensia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Peter Waldo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.829 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 5.4%.

The frighteningly efficient New Waldensian economy, worth 740 trillion Lollards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 153,278 Lollards, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, fly fishermen are legally forbidden from using electronic lures, the disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments, and the only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag. 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 151,050th in the world and 164th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Extreme, scoring 7.67 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
