The Kingdom and Commonwealths of Gagium is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Arsène Rodier with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 4.403 billion Gagiumishes are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Louis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Gagiumish economy, worth a remarkable 1,042 trillion Gagis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 236,782 Gagis, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are refusing to stock A Midsummer Night's Dream because it has an ass in it, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany King Arsène Rodier to meetings with foreign heads of state, and "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gagium's national animal is the Pelican, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Gagium is ranked 10,966th in the world and 20th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 8,600.06 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
