The Collective of the Species of Gallaton is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by A Colliar with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 3.715 billion Gallatonians 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 Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stonehaven. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gallatonian economy, worth 399 trillion Triganic Pus a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,594 Triganic Pus, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Walking to the local pizza parlour earns a lovely sports participation ribbon, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, and hackers post hourly updates on international summits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gallaton's national animal is the Ameglian Major Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gallaton is ranked 155,437th in the world and 90th in New West Indies for Most Pro-Market, scoring 24.44 on the Rand Index.
