The Free Land of Egalico is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kilgore Trout with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.625 billion Egalicoans 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Gallifrey. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Egalicoan economy, worth 169 trillion groats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 104,228 groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Egalico's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Egalico is ranked 33,768th in the world and 1,659th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,992.51 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
