Great Baltic Empire

The Dominion of Great Baltic Empire is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 4.972 billion Baltics are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Great Baltic Empirean economy, worth 504 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,423 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Baltic Empire's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Great Baltic Empire is ranked 174,679th in the world and 3rd in Great Commonwealth of the Midgard for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -11.14 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
