The United Commonwealths of Gagium is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Arsène Rodier with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.761 billion Gagians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business 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 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Gagian economy, worth a remarkable 2,542 trillion Gagis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 290,231 Gagis, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,512,185 per year while the poor average 30,033, a ratio of 50.3 to 1.

Customs turn away those considered to have an unfavourable ethnicity, the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, and the police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 242,484th in the world and 17th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Secular, with 1.08 Atheism Rate.
