The Galactic Empire of Gig em Aggies is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chief Justice D R Pepper with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.295 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 Healthcare 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 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth a remarkable 7,087 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 409,809 Reveilles, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, and ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences. 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 146,260th in the world and 127th in Texas for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.48 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
