The Ancient Baptist Republic of New Waldensia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Peter Waldo with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.948 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 22.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Waldensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,258 trillion Lollards a year, is fairly 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 140,627 Lollards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, and the constant playing of Merry Birthday on New Waldensian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 17,411th in the world and 15th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,165.85 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
