The Republic of Galbidah is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Zaxon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.657 billion Galbidahians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xenos. The average income tax rate is 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Galbidahian economy, worth 559 trillion Gils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,836 Gils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Formula One cars in Galbidah boast 56 miles per gallon, the 'sing-a-long with Zaxon' album is a popular souvenir, the nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, and kids these days know how to throw a proper punch. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galbidah's national animal is the golden butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Galbidah is ranked 7,604th in the world and 433rd in Balder for Most Pacifist, with 146.02 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
