The Republic of Gatalian is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.551 billion Gatalianians 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 large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azan. The average income tax rate is 57.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gatalianian economy, worth 129 trillion Sucres a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is 83,221 Sucres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, Leader's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, a degree in Leader Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, and construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground. Crime is totally unknown. Gatalian's national animal is the Guinea Pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gatalian is ranked 238,287th in the world and 9,363rd in the South Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -9.91 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
