The United Commonwealths of Gagium is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Arsène Rodier with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.081 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Louis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Gagiumish economy, worth a remarkable 1,768 trillion Gagis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 290,804 Gagis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,379,773 per year while the poor average 36,169, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Gagiumish police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, every street in the nation contains at least three law firms, and the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 2,874th in the world and 9th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 14,127.54 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
