The Free Land of Egalico is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Kilgore Trout with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.546 billion Egalicoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Gallifrey. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Egalicoan economy, worth 425 trillion groats a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,032 groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', the endangered saltwater humpback dragon is only seen in captivity programs, and crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop. 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 183,414th in the world and 8,762nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -6.37 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
