The Grand Imperial★Commonwealth of Goltzborg is a very large, economically powerful nation, ruled by Comrade CommiCzar-Chairman Smirnoff with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 138 million, 136 million of whom are zombies, Goltzborgians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, 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 89%, 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.

Organ donation rates have hit a new low, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear. 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 104,584th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.

Goltzborg is currently considering its options.

People: 1,997,544
