Great Baltic Empire

Population13.518 billion



The Dominion of Great Baltic Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.518 billion Baltics have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rīga. The average income tax rate is 41.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Great Baltic Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 2,136 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 158,063 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, families burn Leader's latest official photograph to keep warm, babies are increasingly seen as a luxury, and the mob vote is a crucial electoral demographic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Great Baltic Empire's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Great Baltic Empire is ranked 15,365th in the world and 337th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Poor Incomes, with 90,696.65 Standard Monetary Units.
