The Collective of the Species of Gallaton is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by A Colliar with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 5.573 billion Gallatonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stonehaven. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gallatonian economy, worth 589 trillion Triganic Pus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 105,817 Triganic Pus, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, they who do not work shall not eat, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, and ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gallaton's national animal is the Ameglian Major Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gallaton is ranked 217,730th in the world and 93rd in New West Indies for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.67 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
