Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Misunderstood Dictatorship of Galloism is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Master Chief with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, strictly enforced bedtime, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.932 billion Galloismians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galloism City. The average income tax rate is 59.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Galloismian economy, worth a remarkable 5,792 trillion rupees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 232,323 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, military recruitment numbers are down as citizens object on 'moral grounds', businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, and the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galloism's national animal is the mammoth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Galloismic Way.

Galloism is ranked 168,437th in the world and 15th in Snazzy for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -43.93 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
