The Free Land of Egalico is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kilgore Trout with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.917 billion Egalicoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Gallifrey. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Egalicoan economy, worth 469 trillion groats a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,981 groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Kilgore Trout's questionably sane new coalition partners, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Egalico's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Egalico is ranked 5,849th in the world and 340th in Balder for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,497.82 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
