The Doms Old RP Nation of Galactic Powers is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Biggie the frickity frickin Cheeeeese with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.808 billion working drones are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fruitbird Keep. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.7%.

The frighteningly efficient a working drone economy, worth 194 trillion Gold Bars 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an impressive 107,575 Gold Bars, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, and little children cry as their rainbow drawings are seized by the Straight-Thought Police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galactic Powers's national animal is the monster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Galactic Powers is ranked 76,576th in the world and 27th in Lorania for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,009.96 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
