The People's Republic of Baltic NRC is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 305 million Baltic peoples 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of baltica. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.9%.

The powerhouse Baltic NRCian economy, worth 34.7 trillion guilds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 113,797 guilds, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers, a division of tanks navigating "as the crow flies" has driven into a ravine, and it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baltic NRC's national animal is the kiwi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Baltic NRC is ranked 96,773rd in the world and 170th in Thalassia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,516.28 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
