The Ancient Baptist Republic of New Waldensia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Peter Waldo with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, triple-decker prams, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.735 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valdenton. The average income tax rate is 11.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Waldensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,153 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 149,142 Lollards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Autopsies often involve only cursory examination, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings. 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 216,131st in the world and 60th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Secular, with 4.93 Atheism Rate.
