Great Baltic Empire

The Dominion of Great Baltic Empire is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.317 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, with Defense, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Great Baltic Empirean economy, worth 468 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,049 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The entire retail industry has been replaced by online delivery services, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, and competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents. 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 12,107th in the world and 1st in Great Commonwealth of the Midgard for Most Inclusive, scoring 168.16 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
