The Federal Republic of Galilean Europa is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 255 million Galilean Europan are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 38.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Galilean Europan economy, worth 17.9 trillion Sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 70,292 Sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Fake beard sales are on the rise amongst female commuters, students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, and administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galilean Europa's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Galilean Europa is ranked 56,684th in the world and 2,327th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 68.48 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
