The Maritime Union of New Vinland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Gordon Fraser Ross with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.639 billion New Vinlanders love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montreal. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Vinlandic economy, worth a remarkable 3,335 trillion Maritime Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 147,349 Maritime Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, the government spends billions to protect New Vinland from a disaster that is one in a million, a little pushing and pulling is needed for big ships to pass, and increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Vinland's national animal is the Canada Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The National Council on Faith Diversity.

New Vinland is ranked 269,676th in the world and 168th in Canada for Fattest Citizens, with 5.14 Obesity Rate.
