The United Republic of Galali is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Scrooge McDuck with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.15 billion Galatians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkdon. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Galalian economy, worth 299 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,127 Dollarydoos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galali's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Deism.

Galali is ranked 168,273rd in the world and 263rd in The Free Nations Region for Most Devout, with 2.11 Prayers Per Hour.
