The Technocratic Union of Galahinda is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Yiu Amastacia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 8.526 billion Galahindans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Cascade. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Galahindan economy, worth a remarkable 1,357 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 159,261 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lavish state dinners in The Cascade are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and the government is pouring billions into replacement brains. Crime is totally unknown. Galahinda's national animal is the Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Galahinda is ranked 5,191st in the world and 7th in Eurth for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.59 Years.
