The People's Republic of Galantecio is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Josefo Matzino with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 2.027 billion Galantecians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ŝarceno. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Galantecian economy, worth 124 trillion pojoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,433 pojoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A degree in Josefo Matzino Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, treaties are taken to be mere rules of thumb, parents dread their examinations more than their children, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galantecio's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Galantecio is ranked 23,844th in the world and 3rd in The Sportsbook for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,040.01 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
