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 prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.223 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 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 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth a remarkable 8,841 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 437,197 Reveilles, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

A recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Gig em Aggies after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, and commemoration of the Great Texas War costs almost as much as the war itself. 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 14,641st in the world and 24th in Texas for Most Developed, scoring 81.59 on the Human Development Index.
