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 rampant corporate plagiarism, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.306 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 International Aid 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 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth a remarkable 8,128 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, and Trout Farming. 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 421,026 Reveilles, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, gene-engineered sewerjacks don't smell but they do stink, and former public radio talk pundits are being deployed to front line war zones. 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 168,950th in the world and 157th in Texas for Most Inclusive, scoring 8.31 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
