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 anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.594 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 Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy 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 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth a remarkable 8,875 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 430,997 Reveilles, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, and the elderly are killed softly with a song. 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 159,830th in the world and 172nd in Texas for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.7 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
