Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

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 frequent executions, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The devout population of 2.87 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 96.4%.

The Goltzborgian economy, worth 216 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 75,475 DigitDollar dDs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, and Goltzborg's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses. 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.

Goltzborg is ranked 7th in GLOBAL TREATY ALLIANCE and 105,797th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 0 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
