The Confederate Luddite Tribes of Vrijstaat Limburg is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Governor-General Theo Bovens with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, prohibition of alcohol, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.083 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 medium-sized, 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. The average income tax rate is 52.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Limburgs economy, worth 884 trillion Limburgse Marks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,465 Limburgse Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government seizes all major gold finds, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, and clergy do their best to cover up their old tattoos. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Vrijstaat Limburg is ranked 9,375th in the world and 13th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 9,664.53 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
