The Empire of Galaxiak is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Liu with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.522 billion Galaxians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meteorix. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.4%.

The strong Galaxian economy, worth 262 trillion Mazos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 104,080 Mazos, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cases of disease among the civilian population dwindle as civilian population dwindles, twins move across the country to avoid being accused of the other's crimes, nudity is frowned upon, and photographs that show ladies' ankles are considered risqué. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galaxiak's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Athiesm.

Galaxiak is ranked 246,385th in the world and 167th in Forest for Most Avoided, scoring 1.09 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
