The Kingdom of Gabalux is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Leonardo Leuthar with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.561 billion Gavalians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amity. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gavalian economy, worth 430 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 120,784 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, the new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one, police are trained in using their steel-capped boots as a tool of law enforcement, and tea and biscuits have replaced waterboarding and sleep deprivation as the primary tools of interrogation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gabalux's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gabalux is ranked 135,050th in the world and 5,421st in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -83.27 on the Hayek Index.
