The Galactic Empire of Gig em Aggies is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief Justice D R Pepper with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, free-roaming dinosaurs, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.83 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, with Industry, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reveille City. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth an astonishing 11,855 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 497,519 Reveilles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,832,149 per year while the poor average 95,433, a ratio of 19.2 to 1.

The government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, property owners are terrified of pigeons nesting in their buildings, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia. 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 2,206th in the world and 16th in Texas for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 10,198.02 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
