The Universal Alliance of Gig em Aggies is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief Justice D R Pepper with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.162 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reveille City. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, drug-related crimes carry the death penalty, and the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gig em Aggies's national animal is the Sauroposeidon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Reveille.
