LeaderChancellor Roth


The Furry Republic of Kaltburg is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Roth with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.04 billion Kaltburgers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 61.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kaltburgite economy, worth 145 trillion Volkmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 139,895 Volkmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's surprisingly hard to find pictures of the bad haircuts from Chancellor Roth's childhood, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kaltburg's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Kaltburg is ranked 167,537th in the world and 187th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 26.96 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
