LeaderImpératrice Ysora De Brellaire I


The Méritocratique Qui Marchande of Gallade is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Impératrice Ysora De Brellaire I with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 20.146 billion Gâllaegasque Métropolitains et Coloniaux enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Di'Vellian. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Gâllaegasque economy, worth a remarkable 9,365 trillion bèlouettes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 464,887 bèlouettes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Ironic death by tasering is on the rise amongst door-to-door taser salesmen, Impératrice Ysora De Brellaire I is famed for giving great back rubs, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Di'Vellian. Crime is totally unknown. Gallade's national animal is the swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gallade is ranked 5,200th in the world and 5th in Snazzy for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 13,438.51 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
