The Galactic Empire of Gig em Aggies is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chief Justice D R Pepper with an iron fist, and renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.958 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 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 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth a remarkable 7,914 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 417,500 Reveilles, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, onions have been banned due to their tendency to cause eye irritation, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent. 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 41,213th in the world and 68th in Texas for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,276.12 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
