Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Matriarchy of Galactic Empire of Gaia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory vegetarianism, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.106 billion Galactic Empire of Gaians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaia Mother Earth. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The large but sluggish Galactic Empire of Gaian economy, worth 572 trillion Dogmas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 47,287 Dogmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

"It was only a joke" is no longer a defense for the felony of discrimination, t-shirts displaying a photo of Empress performing the Full-Monty are selling out, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galactic Empire of Gaia's national animal is the Wombat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Galactic Empire of Gaia is ranked 146,984th in the world and 4,316th in Osiris for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.58 Crimes Per Hour.
