The Grand Imperial★Commonwealth of Goltzborg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Comrade CommiCzar-Chairman Smirnoff with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed population of 2.272 billion Goltzborgians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goltzburg Capital Zone CZ. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and protests are legal but strictly supervised. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goltzborg's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Goltz Eastern Imperial Orthodox Church, and its currency is the DigitDollar dD.

Goltzborg is ranked 17th in GLOBAL TREATY ALLIANCE and 109,597th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -5 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
