The Vrijstaat of Vrijstaat Limburg is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Governor-General Theo Bovens with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, triple-decker prams, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.638 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maastricht. The average income tax rate is 46.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Limburgs economy, worth 832 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 147,654 Limburgse Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", heavily-armed commandos play rock-paper-scissors over whether to execute criminals and foreign visitors, pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, and diaper sales are up. 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 24,693rd in the world and 29th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,066.72 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
