The Republic of Galtova is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.504 billion Sindarins love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Galtovan economy, worth 597 trillion Bolås 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 170,443 Bolås, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, Galtovan housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', and religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galtova's national animal is the Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Galtova is ranked 4,980th in the world and 44th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Inclusive, scoring 222.09 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
