The Silver Shroud of Galway-Dublin is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Consul Madeline with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 11.45 billion Furries hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galway. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Furry economy, worth a remarkable 3,242 trillion Taco Bell Coupons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 283,145 Taco Bell Coupons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Furry Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, a drunk fashion designer has started a fashion label themed on nudity and titled "Consul Madeline's New Clothes" (Galway-Dublin has found 5 easter eggs), and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galway-Dublin's national animal is the Kyruem Black, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Life Cereal Vanilla flavor.

Galway-Dublin is ranked 240,051st in the world and 1,193rd in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -24.45 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
