The United Kingdom of Galathion is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 257 million Galathionians 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, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alendion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.1%.

The strong Galathionian economy, worth 15.3 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is 59,658 Marks, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

When people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Mark charge on their phone bill, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, and where there's a will there is usually a password manager. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galathion's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Galathion is ranked 77,565th in the world and 2,917th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 49.78 on the Rand Index.
