LeaderKilgore Trout


The Free Land of Egalico is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Kilgore Trout with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.569 billion Egalicoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Gallifrey. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Egalicoan economy, worth 428 trillion groats a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,108 groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Kilgore Trout's questionably sane new coalition partners, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Egalico's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Egalico is ranked 22,243rd in the world and 1,039th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 120,108.47 Standard Monetary Units.
