Gal Cradia

Population5.49 billion



The Direct Democracy of Gal Cradia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.49 billion Gal Cradians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Watama. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Gal Cradian economy, worth 940 trillion turnips a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 171,294 turnips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You need a signed affidavit from a registered psychiatrist to claim that you have crazy low prices, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, soldiers are equipped with multi-million turnip battlesuits, and citizens sporting mohawks must carry family trees on them at all times. 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 4,942nd in the world and 72nd in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 108.93 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
