The Confederacy of The Great Baltic Union is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate and compulsory military service. The compassionate, devout population of 260 million Balts 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 39.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Great Baltic Unionian economy, worth 15.3 trillion Union Litas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,805 Union Litas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, behind every local dictator is a Great Baltic Unionian advisor whispering in their ear, people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, and newspapers are celebrating Leader saving over a million cats from trees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Great Baltic Union's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
