The Socialist Republic of Galborea is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by General Secretary Alia Mansour with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.637 billion Galboreans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qazan. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The powerhouse Galborean economy, worth a remarkable 1,132 trillion sikkas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 148,332 sikkas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Qazan, billion-sikka sentient AI killbots roll through the streets dispensing hot dogs and T-shirts, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to General Secretary Alia Mansour's wardrobe. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galborea's national animal is the ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Galborea is ranked 12,331st in the world and 5th in Heavy Metal Heaven for Highest Economic Output, with 1,132 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
