The Galactic Empire of Gig em Aggies is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chief Justice D R Pepper with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.888 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, 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 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth an astonishing 12,738 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 492,046 Reveilles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Gig em Aggiesian Liberator", and thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks. 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 15,308th in the world and 21st in Texas for Most Developed, scoring 86.79 on the Human Development Index.
