The Karalystė of Greater Balticia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Elke Von Vikonsil with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.828 billion Baltijonias are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vilokaz. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Baltician economy, worth 242 trillion Baltijonia Svaras a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,510 Baltijonia Svaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Immigrants who don't like the taste of Greater Baltician Turnip Chips are immediately deported, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, Greater Balticia's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Balticia's national animal is the Eurazijos Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Baltijonia Ortodoksas.

Greater Balticia is ranked 14,421st in the world and 42nd in Wintreath for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 245.11 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
