The Allied Free States of Galtria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Davidicus Maximus with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.717 billion Galtrians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropicus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.

The very strong Galtrian economy, worth 312 trillion Galtcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 84,044 Galtcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 282,365 per year while the poor average 18,554, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and illegal moonshine operations get taken out with laser-guided airstrikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Galtria's national animal is the mechanical dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Galtria is ranked 28,904th in the world and 1,217th in Osiris for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 6.06 Bank.
