Kangaroos of Empire of Galea

Population3.215 billion

CurrencyKangaroo Pound

The Kingdom of Kangaroos of Empire of Galea is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.215 billion Kangaroos of Empire of Galeans 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, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 60.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Kangaroos of Empire of Galean economy, worth 49.1 trillion Kangaroo Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Furniture Restoration, Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 15,271 Kangaroo Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kangaroos of Empire of Galea's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kangaroos of Empire of Galea is ranked 162,121st in the world and 6,224th in Chicken overlords for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 780.84 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
