The Microcosmic Time Travelers of Galiantus III is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Loch Ness Monster with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.13 billion Galiantians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.3%.

The all-consuming Galiantus IIIian economy, worth 728 trillion schrodinger pieces a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 102,214 schrodinger pieces, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

The military has adopted a weird double-fisted salute, too many developers spoil the codebase, courtrooms can be a little sketchy, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galiantus III's national animal is the Companion Cube, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Love at First Sight.

Galiantus III is ranked 82,834th in the world and 2,781st in Lazarus for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,012.68 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
