The Free State of Vrijstaat Limburg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Theo Bovens with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.746 billion Limburgers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maastricht. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Limburgs economy, worth 396 trillion Limburgse Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 144,457 Limburgse Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 450,195 per year while the poor average 35,615, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

Genetic researchers have been expelled, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits, and government policies change at the drop of a rabbit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vrijstaat Limburg's national animal is the Red lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Vrijstaat Limburg is ranked 24,118th in the world and 58th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.85 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
