LeaderComrade President


The Republic of Galve is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Comrade President with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.237 billion Galveans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santiago. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Galvean economy, worth 806 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 190,265 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. 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 20,279th in the world and 733rd in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,780.88 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
