The Empire of Galaxiak is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Liu with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.276 billion Galaxians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meteorix. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.1%.

The strong Galaxian economy, worth 237 trillion Mazos 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. 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 104,369 Mazos, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, cases of disease among the civilian population dwindle as civilian population dwindles, and twins move across the country to avoid being accused of the other's crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galaxiak's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Athiesm.

Galaxiak is ranked 165,219th in the world and 258th in Forest for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 432.16 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
