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 public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.389 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, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reveille City. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Gig em Aggiesian economy, worth an astonishing 14,308 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 504,005 Reveilles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has always been at war with Moltovea, military spending recently hit a new high, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, and children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits. 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 1,428th in the world and 5th in Texas for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 859.68 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
