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 sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed population of 2.284 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 92%, 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.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. 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 117,383rd in the world for Nudest, with 10 Cheeks per Square Mile.
