The Empire of Galiora is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Bob with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 18.948 billion Galiorans 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 Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galiora Prime. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Galioran economy, worth 110 trillion navs a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 5,857 navs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, tumbleweed drifts through the nation's shopping centres during the weekends, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galiora's national animal is the Vashta Nerada, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Theological Switzerland.

Galiora is ranked 23,831st in the world and 15th in Nederland for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 206.49 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
