The Ancient Baptist Republic of New Waldensia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Peter Waldo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 7.476 billion New Waldensians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valdenton. The average income tax rate is 8.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Waldensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,145 trillion Lollards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,229 Lollards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Most people learn to drive on crash courses, signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, gay hospital patients are labelled with a pink triangle to alert staff of their substandard blood, and there's often a little nagging voice suggesting that parents aren't keeping their kids safe. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Waldensia's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Credobaptist Christianity.

New Waldensia is ranked 48,095th in the world and 40th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,859.01 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
