Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Galactic Empire of Gig em Aggies is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Chief Justice D R Pepper with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.311 billion Aggies are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reveille City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth a remarkable 7,096 trillion Reveilles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 409,948 Reveilles, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences, and the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Gig em Aggies's national animal is the Sauroposeidon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Gig em Aggies is ranked 150,100th in the world and 140th in Texas for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 9.16 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
