The Galactic Empire of Gig em Aggies is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Chief Justice D R Pepper with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.481 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, although Industry, Education, and Environment are also considered important, 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 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth an astonishing 12,103 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 494,416 Reveilles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Military advisors frequently remind San Vitenzan farmers that they have to pull the pin on a grenade before throwing it, ordinary soldiers trade rumors about the top secret "Death From Above" project, rural Aggies stare in awe at the bright lights of the big cities, and the best spies are positively radiant after completing a big mission. 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 198,571st in the world and 179th in Texas for Nudest, with 47.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
