The Grand Imperial★Commonwealth of Goltzborg is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Comrade CommiCzar-Chairman Smirnoff with an even hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.405 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 93%, 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.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, the government has enacted freedom of information, and military spending recently hit a new high. 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 17th in GLOBAL TREATY ALLIANCE and 110,165th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -5 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
