The Free State of Vrijstaat Limburg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Theo Bovens with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.935 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 22.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Limburgs economy, worth 426 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 145,361 Limburgse Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 457,274 per year while the poor average 35,356, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits, government policies change at the drop of a rabbit, cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on Theo Bovens's desk, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. 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 34,290th in the world and 59th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3,251.04 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
