The Grand Imperial★Commonwealth of Goltzborg is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Comrade CommiCzar-Chairman Smirnoff with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The devout population of 2.671 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 96.0%.
The Goltzborgian economy, worth 199 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 74,767 DigitDollar dDs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, and criminals are executed and their property seized. 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.
