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 digital currency, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.973 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 Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reveille City. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth a remarkable 9,122 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 and Information Technology. 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 434,940 Reveilles, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

There's never enough space in space, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, Gig em Aggies is suspiciously populated compared to its neighbors, and it is illegal to liberate slaves. 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 168,719th in the world and 179th in Texas for Most Inclusive, scoring 7.75 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
