The Liberty Gala

Population2.348 billion

The Republic of The Liberty Gala is a massive, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 2.348 billion Liberty Galans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Liberty Galan economy, worth 38.1 trillion sovereignties a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. Average income is 16,240 sovereignties, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Liberty Gala's national animal is the Gala goer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Liberty Gala is ranked 178,120th in the world and 2nd in The Liberty Gala for Most Armed, with 0.25 weapons per person.
