The Kingdom of Galoamar is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 499 million Galoamarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.6%.

The strong Galoamarian economy, worth 39.8 trillion Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,701 Sterlings, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, Galoamarian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and refugees without a PhD are sent back to where they came from. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Galoamar's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Galoamar is ranked 38,632nd in the world and 303rd in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Free, scoring 76.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
