LeaderComrade President


The Republic of Galve is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Comrade President with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.407 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 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 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Galvean economy, worth a remarkable 1,259 trillion Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 196,543 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, most pop videos prominently feature the Galvean flag, humble workers tempt fate for a taste of airline caviar, and Comrade President's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners. 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 45,997th in the world and 1,447th in The East Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 71.42 Insults Per Minute.
