Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 triple-decker prams, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.686 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 Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. 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 7,314 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, Beef-Based Agriculture, 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 413,562 Reveilles, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, it is often said that only Chief Justice D R Pepper could bring down Dàguó, grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, and new legislators take a week-long class entitled "Keeping Your Job: How to Avoid Offending Chief Justice D R Pepper". 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 151st in the world and 1st in Texas for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 46,196.98 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
