The Grand Imperial★Commonwealth of Goltzborg is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Comrade CommiCzar-Chairman Smirnoff with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical, devout population of 6.841 billion Goltzborgians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
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 95.1%.
The Goltzborgian economy, worth 519 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 75,927 DigitDollar dDs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Immigrant Bigtopians work themselves to the bone to support gold-plated Goltzborgian pensions, the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, and voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot. 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.
