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 avowedly heterosexual populace, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.244 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 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 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth an astonishing 12,419 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 491,963 Reveilles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, couch potatoes are considered to be model citizens, and strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins. 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 2,655th in the world and 7th in Texas for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 17,873.95 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
