The Dominion of Galive is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Barbara Rivera with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.767 billion Galiveans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meigh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.8%.

The Galivean economy, worth 158 trillion rupees a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,229 rupees, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Chocolate in Galive has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers, epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, Galivean actors literally work from cradle to grave, and attempts at growing pineapples in the desert have been unsuccessful. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galive's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Wicca.

Galive is ranked 171,480th in the world and 249th in Oneid for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 49.36 Whatever.
