GEOGRAPHY

Geographic map of Gratzovka.

Gratzovka, being a massive landmass, contains a variety of climates and environments, though, typically, the nation is a temperate state. Locked between dozens of massive mountain chains, the Gratzovkan provinces are primarily made up of temperate valleys, though, in the far south, some desert areas do exist.

ECONOMY


The Gratzovkan economy adopts 'third way' financial methods; allowing for some economic freedom, yet restricting risk-taking and putting into place interventionist safety-nets for failing business, Gratzovka has mixed core capitalist and socialist ideals, establishing a sort of crony-capitalist, corporatist system. This centrally-planned economic system follows quasi-Keynesian policies.

GDP: $35,389,969,969,341.51
GDP Per Capita:$19,359.94
Income Tax Rate (Flat) 35%
Unemployment: 4.4%


The Gratzovkan Pound is worth 1.9 USD.

Gratzovka is an industrial society; the economy rests largely on production of finished products (manufacturing), rather than manipulation of resources (information and finance). However, a substantial, but not very powerful, banking sector exists in the economy, though its privately controlled corporations are limited in their risk-taking by government mandate, thus reducing possibility for failure or success.

MILITARY


Military Anthem

The Gratzovkan Armed Forces consist of 9,140,000 troops, .5% of the total populace. These soldiers maintain a "partial-compulsory" military (the state, by means of the public school system identifies a necessary number of recruits every year, usually selecting them from those seen to be most fit for service of the graduating class (17 year-olds). This entails the most physically fit of the populace, while they must also be intellectually at least capable. Military service lasts only two years, in most cases, and, even then, troops are kept as reserve forces, though a certain portion of the military is always kept "ready-for-action."

Approximately 60% (5,485,000) of all troops are dedicated to the 'Logistics Corps', which is the military branch dedicated solely to the supply of the armies of the Unified Confederation. The other 3,665,000 troops serving in the military are divided up as follows:

1) ARMY
-60%
-2,200,000 troops
-200,000 of which are capable of immediate deployment in an oversees contingency plan
-Well-mechanized, with armor, artillery, and air-support divisions, as well as vehicular transportation for the majority of troops.
-Reserves are primarily stationed in urban areas, in designated districts, or at their own places of residence.


2) NAVY
-30%
-1,100,500 troops
-985 ships in the fleet
-That's 1117 (approximately) men to each ship in the fleet. While no single ship requires a crew of this size, many "Naval" troops actually act as supplementary infantry to the Army, as they are, oftentimes, just sea-capable troops.
-Primarily stationed in coastal areas, including urban port cities.
-Occasionally patrol the coastline of Gratzovka (though this is expensive, and isn't extremely common). Sometimes enact wargames.

3) AIRFORCE
-10%
-366,500
-1,832 jets
-That's 200 men to a single jet: maintenance is required for each vessel, as well as constant flight-assistance, etc.
