Galgos italis

Population10 million

The Confederacy of Galgos italis is a tiny, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 10 million Galgos italianos are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 63.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The basket case Galgos italis economy, worth 58.7 billion Galgês 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 5,872 Galgês, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skateparks can be found in every city, the government pours millions of Galgês into rehabilitation programs annually, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galgos italis's national animal is the Italian greyhounds, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Galgos italis is ranked 40,773rd in the world and 30th in Karma for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 42.16 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
