The Holy Empire of Galimania is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Holy-Emperor Galileo IV with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, strictly enforced bedtime, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.578 billion Galimanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Holy Rome. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Galimanian economy, worth 240 trillion Galimanian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,397 Galimanian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Among slaves 'bastard' is an honorific rather than an insult, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galimania's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

Galimania is ranked 94,881st in the world and 700th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 858.29 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
