The Grand Imperial★Commonwealth of Goltzborg is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Comrade CommiCzar-Chairman Smirnoff with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 2.257 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 91%, 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.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, and motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies. 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 1st in GLOBAL TREATY ALLIANCE and 28,832nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 106 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
