Population6.626 billion

LeaderComrade President


The Republic of Galve is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Comrade President with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.626 billion Galveans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santiago. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Galvean economy, worth a remarkable 1,310 trillion Pesos 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 197,792 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Galve's radio stations, 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. Galve's national animal is the Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Galve is ranked 17,150th in the world and 436th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 6,739.16 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
