The United Republic of Galali is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Scrooge McDuck with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.157 billion Galatians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkdon. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Galalian economy, worth 299 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,642 Dollarydoos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, shell-shocked refugees are made to provide Immigration with lively renditions of 'Dancing Queen', the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts, and every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galali's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Deism.

Galali is ranked 100,610th in the world and 141st in The Free Nations Region for Most Pro-Market, scoring 40.33 on the Rand Index.
