The Grand Imperial★Commonwealth of Goltzborg is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Comrade CommiCzar-Chairman Smirnoff with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 2.422 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, 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 94%, 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.

Cremation is compulsory for the deceased, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. 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, its national religion is Goltz Eastern Imperial Orthodox Church, and its currency is the DigitDollar dD.

Goltzborg is ranked 9th in GLOBAL TREATY ALLIANCE and 63,585th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -26 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
