The Commonwealth of Galloni is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mr Jones with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, cynical population of 2.749 billion Gallonians 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, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Satstin. The average income tax rate is 30.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gallonian economy, worth 162 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,061 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, a rash of recently-elected candidates have begun to push Bigtopia-friendly policies, farting etiquette is taught in schools, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galloni's national animal is the kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Galloni is ranked 88,138th in the world and 60th in Oneid for Most Beautiful Environments, with 571.06 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
