The United Kingdom of Galathion is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alric Tyradell with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 1.82 billion Galathians 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 Alendion. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Galathionian economy, worth 230 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 126,413 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Alendion, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Galathion's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Galathion is ranked 200,512th in the world and 7,996th in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 3.08026191752 Days.
