LeaderComrade President


The Republic of Galve is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Comrade President with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.012 billion Galveans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santiago. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Galvean economy, worth a remarkable 1,201 trillion Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 199,822 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, and Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Galve. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galve's national animal is the Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Galve is ranked 6,315th in the world and 131st in The East Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 199,822.7 Standard Monetary Units.
