The Matriarchy of Galactic Empire of Gaia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, compulsory vegetarianism, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.572 billion Galactic Empires of Gaian 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 479 trillion Dogmas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 41,442 Dogmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, Empress's office is running a trade deficit of midnight oil, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned. 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 177,562nd in the world and 5,717th in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -28.25 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
