Galicia (English /ɡəˈlɪsiə/), officially the Democratic Republic of Galicia, is a country in Central Punth. It is bordered by Pankara to the west, Anta Carda to the north, the Punthite Republic to the east, and Ceylonia to the southeast. The capital and largest city of Galicia is Porto Alegre.

Although inhabited since the Paleolithic Era, what is now Galicia was molded by Insuian colonisation. It began with, and was for centuries limited to, coastal settlements and trading posts established starting in the 16th century. In the 19th century, Romano settlers slowly and hesitantly began to establish themselves in the interior. The Insuian colony that became Galicia did not have its present borders until the early 20th century because of resistance by native groups.

Galicia has vast mineral and petroleum reserves, and its economy is among the fastest-growing in the world, especially since the end of its civil war; however the standard of living remains low for a large part of the population, and life expectancy in Galicia is among the lowest in the world. Galicia's economic growth is uneven, with most of the nation's wealth concentrated in a disproportionate sector of the population.
