The Quangocracy of Galterama is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Editor with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 20.646 billion Galteramen hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galterama City. The average income tax rate is 15.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Galteraman economy, worth a remarkable 3,169 trillion words a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 153,525 words, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, small towns have started burning historical buildings in hopes of attracting tourists, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Galterama's national animal is the peacock, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Grammarianism.

Galterama is ranked 171,159th in the world and 9th in The Atlantic for Most Devout, with 2.08 Prayers Per Hour.
