Galiantus III

Population4.27 billion

CurrencyDead WA
AnimalWA Killer

The Republic of Galiantus III is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 4.27 billion Galiantus IIIians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Galiantus IIIian economy, worth 265 trillion Dead WAS a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,082 Dead WAS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, the sick and dying are locked in their homes with a red "X" painted on the front door, weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, and the new biography of Leader is subtitled "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate the Bomb". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galiantus III's national animal is the WA Killer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Galiantus III is ranked 128,380th in the world and 3rd in Gilgamesh for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.9 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
