The Province of Gallifrey was an administrative region of the St.Charlian Federation of Koss located in the Federative Republic of Brazil. Its capital was Tardis where most of the political and economical business is located.
The term Gallifrey has generated many polemic, many seem to think it is a reference to the sci-fi television show Doctor Who, as many elements such as language and culture are very influenced by such show. While others, believe the term gallifrey comes from bringing the terms gali(lituanian for being able to) and frei(german for free) together. This would mean gallifrey could be translated as able to be free as advocated by Burgomeister Sjores . In a speech, Sjores stated Gallifreyans wanted to be free from the corruption of Brazil.
Gallifrey was one of the oldest administrative regions in Koss. Dating back to the days of the foundation of the Republic.
Gallifrey was governed by Burgomeister Lucas Sjores. The Burgomeister had unlimited powers within the Province, and was able to instate anything by decree, so long as it was not contradictory to Federal Law.
