The Direct Democracy of Gal Cradia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Unity with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.233 billion Gal Cradians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Watama. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Gal Cradian economy, worth a remarkable 1,359 trillion turnips a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 188,010 turnips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Getting an autograph has become harder than ever, with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, money grows on trees, and the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gal Cradia's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Gal Cradia is ranked 1,134th in the world and 24th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 98.24 on the Human Development Index.
