The Holy Empire of Galimania is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 316 million Galimanians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Holy Rome. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.9%.

The powerhouse Galimanian economy, worth 33.0 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,486 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 384,776 per year while the poor average 20,042, a ratio of 19.2 to 1.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, and politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galimania's national animal is the eagle.

Galimania is ranked 136,128th in the world and 1,337th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Free, scoring 48.19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
