The Free Sectors of The Galactic Liberal Democracy is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Galactic Government with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.916 billion Galactic Citizens 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galactic Center. The average income tax rate is 56.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Galactic Democratic economy, worth 400 trillion Democratic Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 137,254 Democratic Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, and calisthenics is a well-known tax-dodging technique. Crime is totally unknown. The Galactic Liberal Democracy's national animal is the Dewback, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Galactic Liberal Democracy is ranked 32,011th in the world and 34th in Union of Allied States for Most Cultured, scoring 73 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
