The Grand Imperial★Commonwealth of Goltzborg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Comrade CommiCzar-Chairman Smirnoff with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, national health service, and parental licensing program. The devout population of 4.361 billion Goltzborgians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goltzburg Capital Zone CZ. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.
The Goltzborgian economy, worth 329 trillion DigitDollar dDs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports. Average income is 75,637 DigitDollar dDs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, Goltzborg's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, and immigrant Bigtopians work themselves to the bone to support gold-plated Goltzborgian pensions. Crime, especially youth-related, 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, and its national religion is Goltz Eastern Imperial Orthodox Church.
