The Grand Duchy of Schlesien-Galizien is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.008 billion Schlesien-Galizienians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Breslau. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Schlesien-Galizienian economy, worth 37.7 trillion Thalers 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 Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 37,375 Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, Leader is famed for giving great back rubs, Schlesien-Galizien has designated Breslau as its capital city, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Schlesien-Galizien's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Schlesien-Galizien is ranked 199,492nd in the world and 5,360th in the West Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -31.74 on the Hayek Index.
