Great Baltic Empire

Population13.547 billion



The Dominion of Great Baltic Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its digital currency, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.547 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 41.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Great Baltic Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 2,145 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 158,376 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Babies are increasingly seen as a luxury, the mob vote is a crucial electoral demographic, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and Baltics have recently stopped mysteriously setting off metal detectors. 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 8,116th in the world and 174th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,253.31 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
