The Third French Colonial Empire of Galster is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Napoléon VII with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 10.628 billion French are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marseille. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient French economy, worth a remarkable 2,563 trillion Gallic roosters 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 241,217 Gallic roosters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping, and the standard prescription for infertility-causing conditions is "go have a baby". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galster's national animal is the Rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Galster is ranked 6,091st in the world and 60th in Europe for Highest Economic Output, with 2,563 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
