The Grand Federation of Gallifrax is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Eama O'Muircheartaigh with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.842 billion Gallifraxians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caprica. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Gallifraxian economy, worth a remarkable 2,720 trillion Gallifraxian State Credits 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 211,873 Gallifraxian State Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass. Crime is totally unknown. Gallifrax's national animal is the Gallifraxian Ashura Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Celtic Paganism.

Gallifrax is ranked 69,026th in the world and 232nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 222.05 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
