The Vrijstaat of Vrijstaat Limburg is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Theo Bovens with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, fear of technology, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.451 billion Limburgers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, 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 33.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Limburgs economy, worth 818 trillion Limburgse Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 150,085 Limburgse Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 683,042 per year while the poor average 20,160, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.

Teachers label difficult children as "somebody else's problem" before expelling them, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, and colonial subjects have Limburgs culture shoved down their throats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vrijstaat Limburg's national animal is the Red lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Vrijstaat Limburg is ranked 23,179th in the world and 11th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Developed, scoring 78.94 on the Human Development Index.
