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 free-roaming dinosaurs, disturbing lack of elderly people, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.91 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 Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reveille City. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth a remarkable 8,570 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, 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 430,472 Reveilles, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

Pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams, and Gig em Aggies has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. 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 1,117th in the world and 3rd in Texas for Best Weather, with 539 Meters Of Sunlight.
