The Galactic Empire of Gig em Aggies is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief Justice D R Pepper with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.797 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 Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. 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 6,753 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, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 402,090 Reveilles, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", and academics are questioning the quality of the nation's newly-reprinted science textbooks. 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 2,216th in the world and 8th in Texas for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 8,366.56 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
