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 notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 31.76 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reveille City. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth an astonishing 16,324 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 a breathtaking 513,988 Reveilles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government spends billions to protect Gig em Aggies from a disaster that is one in a million, Aggies are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, children are often observed making 'sand angels' in bunkers, and Chief Justice D R Pepper has been declared supreme ruler for all eternity. 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 243,697th in the world and 84th in Texas for Most Pro-Market, scoring -55.56 on the Rand Index.
