The Third French Colonial Empire of Galster is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Napoléon VII with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 9.795 billion French 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marseille. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient French economy, worth a remarkable 2,357 trillion Gallic roosters a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 240,635 Gallic roosters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Engaged partners detail their fiancés' private lives in detail to prurient bureaucrats, AIs make up a majority of the long-term warehouse population, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and shaking a stone out of your shoe is considered to be dangerously risqué. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galster's national animal is the Rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Galster is ranked 204,919th in the world and 588th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -40.14 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
